About Us

Our charity has been in existence for a few years now. We continue to grow in numbers and in success at a rapid pace. There is a great need for ways to assist individuals in their time of emotional and financial distress. Our group was formed out of this need.

#1 Question: What is a Gaunch?

Gaunch was a term coined by a Varsity Football player in 1977 and popularized by a Phys Ed teacher in the 1980'S in Orchard Park, NY. The term was used as an insult but proudly embraced by a group of school age boys and girls dressed in leather and denim who enjoyed good times. They would gather together often at the "Ridge". They would share in their love of fast cars and loud music. Gaunches have grown into responsible loving parents and successful citizens. Gaunches have created their own 501c3 organization to give back to the community.
