Roar is twice as loud at Thomas County Community Foundation

COLBY – The Thomas County Community Foundation was highly successful in its effort to raise funds to match a Hansen Foundation grant this year.

The fund-raising goal was exceeded by 41 percent; new donors were increased by 73 percent, and repeat donors were increased by 600 percent!

Pictured are “Little Eagles,” pre-K children who held stuffed lions and roared in a Facebook video to publicize the campaign, which was called “Let Your Roar Be Heard, Twice!”
