Your Friendship Gift Makes All the Difference
“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.” - Walter Winchell
The foundation has been bringing generous people together for more than 20 years. With help like yours, we are making a significant positive impact.
- Thanks to you, we quickly established The Community Relief Fund, dedicated to immediate relief and long-term recovery in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. The fund has already assessed critical needs, raised over $570,000 and distributed $448,375 in rapid-response grants to area nonprofits.
- Your support helped us establish a new fund that will make grants to advance racial justice work and help ensure a safe and equitable community for people of color in our region.
- With your help, we manage 41 scholarship funds from application, to community volunteer review to award and student celebration. Local seniors received $150,074, brightening a tumultuous 2020 senior year.
- And because of you, we steward 171 named charitable funds and collectively distributed $2.35 million in grants efficiently and effectively.
