Coming together for Moffat County
"When I heard about the idea of 100 women giving $100, I knew we needed something like this in Moffat County. Many people grow weary of donating because they don't really know where their money goes. By providing grants for tangible, hands-on community improvement projects, and giving members a say in who gets the money, I truly believe that Women for Moffat County will have a HUGE impact on improving our community. Local women can come together with a small donation to make a profound difference! I am so proud to be working with amazing locals to get great ideas funded and on the ground. Our board consists of savvy, smart women who know the value of a dollar. ” President and Co-founder, Kacey Green

Loy Jones moved to Moffat County in 2012 and quickly knew this would be her long-term home. She has a passion for agriculture and the beef industry and serves on many boards to help advocate for her ag roots. Her even bigger passion though is to “simply help” anyone or any worthy cause grow. Having chosen Craig as home she hopes to help it flourish in the years to come by being involved in organizations such as Women for Moffat County. Her goal is to double the membership in 2022.
