The concept of a community foundation is as simple as it is brilliant. A community foundation empowers and strengthens the resources already within the community, providing an easy and effective vehicle for people to achieve their charitable dream. Community foundations maximize a donor’s gift through cutting-edge planned giving and sound, pooled investing, all while keeping a finger on the pulse of the community. They solve problems with high impact and thoughtful philanthropy, opening the door for people to come together to address pressing issues, share creative ideas and develop innovative programs.

In short, community foundations build the community they serve by connecting people and resources to build a vision for a better tomorrow.
