GREDF’s 2023 Annual Meeting

The 2023 Great River Economic Development Foundation’s annual meeting will be here soon! The meeting will happen on December 12th. This will be an opportunity to hear from GREDF President Kyle Moore regarding the progress and accomplishments made in 2023 and give you an inside look at GREDF’s areas of focus for 2024. In addition, the meeting will feature remarks from County Board Chairman Kent Snider and Quincy Mayor Mike Troup.

The event will kick off at 4:45 p.m. with a social hour, and the program will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Oakley-Lindsay Center. We hope our annual meeting will be an informative and relaxing environment to bring together community partners, business leaders, elected officials, and GREDF members for a chance to connect and collaborate. Don’t worry about missing supper, there will be plenty of food and drinks throughout the whole program to make sure you won’t go hungry! The program will conclude at 6:30 p.m.

Quincy's Calling

We know there’s a whole batch of would-be entrepreneurs and business leaders who are looking for a place where they can succeed, Quincy is the place for you. Here how Quincy is the place to do business from our partners at Area Distributors.

Connecting You to Financial Incentives

We understand that there is a mired of incentives that are offered to your business by government at every level. It can be confusing, and we know, with your busy schedule you may not have the time to even begin to tap into the resources available to you. We can help you navigate that process, so money is not left on the table and so your project becomes a reality with a little less on your place.

One example of this was our partnership with Jerry Neal and the team at Sunset Home.

Connecting You to Opportunities

If you have an idea, an opportunity, or a project that might benefit your company or our community, we hope that you will think of the Great River Economic Development Foundation. Check out how two individuals, who picked up the phone to GREDF, and formed a partnership that benefited each other, and will be a part of our business community for decades to come.

Talent Pipeline

GREDF is here to work on strengthening our Talent Pipeline. We connect students, the unemployed, the underemployed, and those job seekers with the many opportunities that are available to them right in their backyard.

One way we do this is through the Tri-State MakerFest which brings over 200 high school students from the Tri-State area to get one-on-one experience on career opportunities wiith local companies.
