The Community Foundation connects donors with nonprofit organizations that serve the current and future needs of the people throughout our region. It provides broad community leadership by bringing diverse groups of individuals and organizations together to develop community-wide solutions for problems and issues.
The Community Foundation receives gifts from individuals, corporations and organizations. These gifts are named and placed in endowment funds and invested to generate earnings. The Community Foundation coordinates with fund advisors to use these earnings to distribute grants to a variety of nonprofit programs, organizations and community-oriented charitable efforts that benefit area residents and organizations, as well as to distribute scholarships to local students.
On May 3, the foundation will sponsor the third annual Community Give, a 24-hour online event when thousands of people will donate hundreds of thousands of dollars — the most raised in a single day — to support the issues and charities the foundation are passionate about. The goal for this year’s event is to raise one million dollars in the 24-hour period.
Use this day to show your children the power of giving. Give to a local cause you care about! Visit TheCommunityGive.org for more information and to support your favorite on May 3!
