The Community Foundation is the primary vehicle for mobilizing community philanthropy in our area. We help a wide variety of donors fulfill their philanthropic interests that in the end help with the social and economic future of our residents.

  • Build a substantial base of permanent, endowed charitable funds that will promote the quality of life in the county in perpetuity;
  • Promote community leadership activities and collaborate within the nonprofit sector of the county to more effectively leverage resources toward shared goals and encourage innovative and more effective approaches towards addressing community needs;
  • Allow residents to become philanthropists in an easier, more cost effective way through their charitable funds set up at the community foundation; and
  • Expand and strengthen the Foundation’s professional staff and volunteers.
