First, we listen

People give for all kinds of reasons, from family tradition, to a sense of obligation, to a desire to act on passionately held beliefs. The most effective philanthropy joins your interests and experiences with the current needs in the community and seeks desired outcomes.  We will help develop a personal mission statement that goes with your giving plan and incorporates other family members as desired.

Simple ideas. Big impact.

The Community Foundation holds over 230 funds, each representing a special set of goals and a unique reason for giving. We invite you to read stories of these individuals who have already decided to make a difference in their community and draw inspiration from their experiences.
