The Gilsum Recreation Committee, which puts on the annual Gilsum Rock Swap and Mineral Show, has received 501C3 status from the IRS for its charitable mission to fund and help to provide recreational programs to the people of Gilsum. As a 501C3 the committee can accept tax deductible donations to support children's recreation programs and other activities. The organization uses funds raised at the annual Rock Swap to help fund programs such as the 6th grade class field trip and summer recreation programs for Gilsum children. It also helped to build the playground and tennis courts at the Gilsum Elementary School.
