We create giving solutions that fit every situation

You access local expertise. Your community foundation is a local organization staffed by people from your community and led by a local board of trustees. This group of people has an in-depth knowledge of the issues, opportunities, and resources that shape your community, enabling them to play a key role in solving community problems, while helping donors learn more about local needs in order to make their giving as effective as possible.

We make a difference where it is needed most

You support community leadership. Community foundations play a key role in addressing community needs, now and in the future. We are governed by leaders with strong ties to our communities. We also act as community catalysts, bringing diverse voices and groups together to address local issues, and fostering greater giving and volunteering in our communities. We build endowments to ensure grants support the community forever. Our work ties closely to that of nonprofits; we foster the development of new organizations and programs, support high-impact opportunities, and redirect funds as community needs change.
