Every dollar donated and endowed with the Foundation benefits the community – FOR EVER. A donation to the Community Foundation is a permanent investment in our community’s well-being.

How your gift will be used
We will work with you to direct your legacy to support the causes you care about most.
You can choose to support specific charities or causes, or our competitive Community Grants program, which will support a wide range of projects for years to come.
Community needs constantly change. We listen to local partners and agencies to identify current challenges to our community’s well-being. Our directed granting enables the grants we make to build a more caring and vibrant community.
Working with the Community Foundation, you can set up your own endowment fund supporting the community the way you wish. A permanent, named endowment fund can be created with a minimum gift of $10,000. Contact us to learn more.
