Community Foundations are the area's leaders in philanthropy

Your community foundation is a public charity dedicated to improving our area through grantmaking. We bring together the financial resources of individuals, families, and businesses with the ideas, projects and leading efforts of our local nonprofit and government entities to create change and support our community.

A community foundation looks to the long-term growth of an area by building permanent endowment funds to ensure there are always funds available to respond to pressing needs and to take action on new opportunities and initiatives.
