The Grandview Community Association
The Grandview Community Association was formed as a non-profit association in April 2005 to promote community activities that enhance the health and well-being of the community. The GCA coordinated the annual Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic until 2017, helping it become a leading destination of central Ohioans every June.
The GCA was able to draw on corporate sponsorships and the support of area businesses to generate enthusiasm for the sport and the community, and to give back more than $20,000 in donations to numerous non-profit groups.
These include donations to:
