Get to Know Tom Grant, NCMC Foundation and The Weld Trust Board Chairman and President
For years, Tom Grant has prioritized the health, wellness, and education of his Weld County neighbors. He knows healthy communities are ones that can thrive, and he strives to maintain an active role in making his city a better place for all.
Initially the Chairman and President of The Weld Trust, Grant also became the Chairman and President of the North Colorado Medical Center (NCMC) Foundation when the two organizations aligned in spring of 2020. He is currently the head for both organizations’ boards. The two entities work hand-in-hand, offering support to healthcare and education philanthropic efforts in Greeley and surrounding communities.
“The NCMC Foundation has done such wonderful work in our community and has raised money for important projects related to healthcare,” he said. “If you don’t have a healthy community, many other assets of the community can’t be fully enjoyed, which is why having a strong healthcare system is so important.”
Grant became involved in local philanthropic efforts to make a difference in Weld County and be a good steward for the hospital. The mission of the NCMC Foundation speaks to him in that through fundraising and charitable caregiving, the overall quality of care at the hospital can improve to provide additional resources to patients in need. Moreover, the partnership between the NCMC Foundation and The Weld Trust allows for larger giving opportunities and a greater reach to the populations they serve.
“The NCMC Foundation and The Weld Trust boards work together to provide a number of projects and gifts that will improve the health and education of our community,” he said. “I love getting to work alongside my colleagues — who are very smart and talented, and have great ideas — to do good for our Weld County citizens.”
Grant grew up in the Denver area and moved to Greeley in 1994 to take on the role of assistant city attorney. He decided he never wanted to leave. He and his wife, Margaret, have been married for 31 years and raised their family here. They have two sons: Reid, 29, who works in New York City for Goldman Sachs, and Michael, 25, who works at a tech company in Denver and recently started law school.
“I have a great affinity for Greeley and there are so many wonderful things about this area, including the people, that really kept us here,” Grant said.
Grant is a partner at Grant and Hoffman Law Firm, and when he isn’t participating in one of his many board duties, he turns his attention to his clients and their legal issues. In addition to his roles for The Weld Trust and NCMC Foundation, Grant is a board member for the Downtown Development Authority. He also served on the Poudre River Trail Board for nearly 20 years
You can find Grant spending his free time in the mountains, hiking, going on walks, reading, and taking advantage of Greeley’s Friday Fests in the summer — post-pandemic, of course.
Grant appreciates all of the hard work done by the NCMC Foundation team and board. He said their efforts have made a huge impact in the community and that everyone has played an important role in making the NCMC Foundation into what it is today. He hopes to continue the organization’s success and expand efforts to benefit Weld County’s future in healthcare.
