What We Do

The Community Foundation is a collection of charitable funds established through donor contributions. The Foundation also manages competitive grant funds makes annual grants through a competitive process that solicits grant proposals from local nonprofits in the area of the environment, education and health.

Individuals, families, corporations and non-profit organizations can contribute to the Foundation by making a gift to one of the existing funds or by establishing a named fund.

The Foundation, as a public charity, raises virtually all its resources from a broad cross-section of the public each year. It was formed as a way to allow people, regardless of financial resources, to contribute money to an endowment to benefit their communities or causes they care passionately about.

As a local non-profit organization, the Community Foundation is the perfect vehicle for people to give back to the community. It provides donors with a great deal of flexibility while maximizing tax advantages.
