Gogebic Range Health Foundation launches fund drive

April 21, 2021 

The Gogebic Range Health Foundation is holding a Spring Fundraising Drive this month.

The Gogebic Range Health Foundation (GRHF) is a philanthropic organization that works to advance community health across the Gogebic Range. Serving both Iron County, Wisconsin, and Gogebic County, Michigan, the organization promotes healthy living through community grant making, partners with local organizations and agencies to create a healthy and active community, and invests in community projects that have a positive influence on the health of the Gogebic Range community. In the five years since the GRHF began operating as a public charity, it has distributed over $750,000 to non-profit organizations in Gogebic and Iron Counties.  

GRHF has been generous in its support for ICORE’s work in Iron County.  In 2017, the City of Hurley received a $5,000 grant and in 2019, ICORE received a $20,000 grant, both of which helped to fund the expansion on the Hurley Non-motorized Trail.  GRHF has also been a sponsor of the MECCA Trails Winterfest and other area silent sports events.

Your donation to the GRHF during the Spring Fundraising drive will go directly to GRHF’s grant making and collaboration funds in the Gogebic Range community, with a focus on future trail developments. Your donation in any amount will also show the GRHF our appreciation and support for their continued work toward creating a fun and healthy place to live for all Gogebic Range communities.
