Story and Mission Community Impact Program (C.I.P.) In addition to executing our organization’s mission and vision, The Grounds and Greater Gulf State Fair have been able to impact our community by partnering with other non-profits through the means of direct monetary giving, complimentary or discounted facility usage, and fundraising assistance. Our organization has partnered with various nonprofits and businesses to give and fundraise over $1,000,000 in the last six years.
