For more than 100 years, we have helped individuals, families, and businesses make a real difference in the lives of others through charitable giving.  The Community Foundation’s services are customized to meet the unique goals of new or experienced donors who have interests in local, national, or international charitable investments.


We Make Giving Easy
The Community Foundation offers efficient, cost-effective administrative and investment services that help donors make a difference – freeing them from writing checks and tracking gifts, chasing down acknowledgement letters, or scrutinizing investment options. 

We Offer Counsel
The Community Foundation helps donors clarify their charitable intent, focus their charitable goals, and plan for the long-term involvement of family members in philanthropic decision-making. 

We Provide Professional Grantmaking Assistance
The Community Foundation supports donors as they identify and evaluate prospective grantees locally, nationally, and internationally. 

We Build Connections
The Community Foundation links the interests of donors with the needs of the community through educational tools, programs, and advice.  We also connect donors with other donors and civic resources through formal and informal networking opportunities. 

We Develop and Help Evaluate Financial Planning Strategies
The Community Foundation helps donors maximize the dollars available for family giving by leveraging tax benefits that come from lifetime charitable investment and testamentary bequests.
