Your 2016 Great HEART Give Finalists!

Great HEART Give Finalists Announced

It’s finally here! We’re announcing our
2016 Great HEART Give finalists!

First, let us begin by sharing how grateful we are to all who nominated this year. We had a huge burst of positivity and enthusiasm from each and every one of you. We were moved by your messages. How lucky we all are to live in communities fostered by such caring organizations. If your organization was not chosen for this year’s contest, we ask you to please nominate again next year. This was a truly difficult decision for us because your causes are all so deserving. From the bottom of our hearts (no pun intended), we thank you for sharing your missions.
