We make giving easy and effective, accepting a wide variety of gifts and providing donors a number of charitable options. You can contribute cash, stocks, property, and bequests. You may establish a fund in your name or in the name of a loved one. In most cases, your gift qualifies for maximum tax advantage under federal law.

Our professional staff has an in-depth understanding of the issues, opportunities, and resources that shape our community. They monitor all areas of community needs and can help you learn more about local organizations and programs that make a difference in areas you care about most.
Three: community leadership.
We invest in the long term and bring people and organizations together, convening diverse voices to address local issues and opportunities. Our business is building community.
What is a Community Foundation?
Community foundations are tax-exempt public charities that help guide people’s philanthropy and are dedicated to improving the quality of life in the areas they serve. Individuals, families, businesses and organizations work with community foundations to create charitable funds that help meet the needs of their community. The foundation invests and administers these funds. For donors, community foundations offer a range of charitable giving options that provide tax benefits and strategic advice about philanthropy. For the geographic region they serve, community foundations provide leadership, expertise and capital to address social issues and serve as a resource for nonprofit, civic, government and philanthropic organizations.
