make a charitable impact
The Community Foundation is here to make personal philanthropy flexible, easy and effective.
Joining our community of donors is an easy way for you to achieve your charitable goals.
The Community Foundation offers the simplicity and tax advantages of a public charity, combined with the personal recognition, involvement and flexibility of a private foundation.
When you establish a fund, you access the highest level of strategic thinking on ways to meet community challenges. We make your contributions as effective as possible. And because we plan to be here, serving this community in perpetuity, you can be assured of a permanent source of support for the issues you care about.
Giving through The Community Foundation is:
Easy. Make your own choices or take advantage of our staff's expertise to help you address the community's most pressing challenges. A fund can be established in a short time with a simple governing document. The Community Foundation staff and board are available and ready to facilitate the process for you.
Flexible. Choose the causes and organizations you want to support. Choose the type of fund that fits you best and tailor it over time. The Community Foundation has the experience necessary to match your personal interests and tax planning needs.
Effective. The power of community means that your fund will share the costs of a knowledgeable staff, enjoy excellent financial management and benefit from a closely monitored investment strategy. Rest at ease knowing that The Community Foundation is working to ensure that your charitable fund creates the best impact possible.
Permanent. The Community Foundation is building a permanent collection of funds for our community. Our Board of Governors ensures that these funds will grow in perpetuity and will continue to carry out the charitable objectives of the donors who established them. If these objectives ever become impossible to carry out, the Board will redirect the funds to support a closely related purpose.
