What is a Community Foundation?

The essence of a community foundation is many people putting their money together to address the diverse needs where they live. Gifts enable people to dream bigger, to see the countless possibilities. As money is endowed, the gifts grow forever, providing ongoing support to help the community prosper.

Community foundations reflect and support donors' wide array of interest and help them address all aspects of community need including arts and culture, economic development, education, environment, health, human services, and recreation.
