Our Grant Officers

Gibney Family Grant Officers are comprised of family members who wish to become more involved with the Foundation.  Throughout the year, TGFF Grant officers work directly with the Chief Grant Officer to assist with the grant review process.  The review process is as unique as our application process; being that we carefully consider and work with applicants and their sponsors individually.  Using this approach, TGFF builds relationships as well as empowers organizations to reach their goals.
