What we do

For Donors

We offer a variety of tools for you, your family, your business or your nonprofit organization to make a difference in our community.

How We Help

Creating a fund with the Community Foundation is a very simple process  and the continued relationship remains as easy throughout the life of the fund. We are here to serve you and your family and to make your philanthropic experience as enjoyable and fulfilling as it should be.

Through your fund, you can provide ongoing support to your favorite organizations or choose different nonprofit organizations each year during your lifetime.  You can make your own choices or take advantage of our staff’s expertise to help address the community’s most pressing challenges. You have the opportunity to distribute gifts during your lifetime or to leave a lasting legacy in your will – or both.

Establishing your own named charitable fund does not require great wealth and it isn’t complicated.  We handle all of the necessary paperwork, acknowledgements, due diligence, research and administration.  See a list of how giving through the Community Foundation may further benefit you below.
