Cal Heminway Tribute Fund
The Cal Heminway Tribute Fund has been established by a grateful Granby family in honor of Cal’s many years of public service. “Through the reliable stewardship of the GEF, we wish to support the creation of the Cal Heminway Tribute Fund to Promote Student Engagement in Public Service. With an initial lead gift of $5000, we invite others to join us in developing an endowment to provide grants in support of student engagement with Granby’s public and community service organizations, so that our youth will forever be exposed to and learn from the example of others – like Cal – who give tirelessly and capably to make Granby special.”
Donations to the fund are currently being accepted and will support the GEF’s Community Grant Program.
