OVER 50 YEARS OF SERVICE to the COMMUNITY
Each year the Community Foundation makes monetary grants to a number of local organizations that provide important services or support to area residents in need. All the money we distribute comes from local supporters who contribute to our Annual Fund or other fundraising efforts. We receive no government support. 100% of the funds we raise in donations each year goes directly to these organizations. When you donate to the Community Foundation, we pass your full donation on to them. All of our administrative expenses are covered by our Endowment Fund.
The Community Foundation is well-known and highly regarded by our donors. They look to us to further our common goal of supporting important local programs integral to the well-being of our neighbors. The Community Foundation is a valued partner of these organizations by decreasing their fundraising burden.
Last year the organizations we supported had over 31,000 participants in their programs. These organizations rely on our support to help sustain the important work they do. All have seen severe funding cuts over the past several years, including hugely decreased government funding, but the demand for their programs and services keeps increasing. The Community Foundation is an important vehicle through which local residents can help to fill that funding gap.
