The Community Foundation Launches Redesigned Website, Convenes Region Toward Giving

The Community Foundation’s newly redesigned website at cfrrr.org offers generous people information and access to effective charitable giving. The new design and updated content make it easy to give, easy to learn and easy to get involved.

Each main section of the website is a portal to impactful resources for generous citizens, professional advisors, and nonprofit leaders.

Give: Start a named fund at the foundation, invest in our region through The Community Fund, and find tax advantaged ways to donate, like scholarship tax credits.

Plan: Add our region or a cause you believe in to your will, meet the community of donors who are making a lasting commitment to our region.

Advise: Tools and information for attorneys, accountants and other professional advisors to better serve your clients.

Apply: Access grant funding for area nonprofits and scholarships for high school seniors, and more.

We are grateful to Kaeser Compressors, Inc. for supporting The Community Foundation to make this valuable resource available to our community. Kaeser Compressors is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and providers of compressed air products and services with US corporate headquarters in Fredericksburg, Va.

“This redesign has a modern graphic focus and unified design hierarchy,” according to web developers Higashi Glaser Design. “It allows potential givers to easily navigate the remarkable number of giving options and programs the foundation offers.”

The Community Foundation is a devoted advocate for the vitality and well-being of the Rappahannock River Region.  It is a 501 c 3 nonprofit that manages and distributes charitable giving in the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George, and Caroline, and the City of Fredericksburg.

The Community Foundation promotes greater philanthropy by taking on the challenges donors face in a responsible and knowledgeable manner. It distinguishes itself  from other local charities by providing efficient and effective services to build a collection of permanent funds.

“Whether you are already familiar with The Community Foundation, or just getting to know us, I think you will be impressed with what you find on the new website,” said Jamie Scully, the foundation’s Marketing Committee Chair
