What is a Community Foundation?

Community foundations work with individuals, families, businesses and organizations to create permanent charitable funds that help meet present and future needs. The foundation invests and administers these funds.

Additionally, community foundations are important partners in building and strengthening community, bringing together people and organizations that want to make a difference within their city, county, state and beyond. They are tax-exempt public charities that help guide philanthropy and are committed to improving the quality of life in the areas they serve.
