The Community Foundation is that small group of people. We operate with the understanding that we can make a big difference in the world—one gift at a time. With over 40 years of grant-giving experience, we are committed to the future of the community. We find creative ways to support the growth and development of our community by forging lasting relationships with, and between, donors, advisors, leaders, and non-profits in the region.
