At the Smokin' on Broadway event in Imperial in August, Brianna Pribbeno won the opportunity to direct a $500 grant from the Imperial Community Foundation Fund to a charitable organization that benefits Imperial. As a sponsor of Interact, she felt confident the Interact students would put the money to good use. The Interact students chose to purchase backpacks and school supplies for children in need. Great job!

Imperial, the family of Dan and Tiffany Reeves, and the Imperial Community Foundation Fund are featured on page 3 of the 2016 Annual Report of the Nebraska Community Foundation.

The Imperial Community Foundation Fund again delivered mailboxes to the 2016 Chase County Schools graduates, our way of reminding the graduates their home town supports them and encouraging them to return to the community in the future.

Please "like" and respond on our Facebook page. One random participant will be awarded the opportunity to direct a $500 grant to a charitable group or cause in Imperial.
