The Foundation is powered by collaboration.
The Community Foundation is best known for its work as a connector between donors and nonprofit agencies and scholarship recipients. Awareness is growing that the Community Foundation’s philanthropic leadership reaches far beyond our office walls. The Community Foundation provides direct support as both a convener and as an educator.
The Community Foundation as a Covener.
The Community Foundation is proud to serve as a “neutral convener” in the community — bringing together diverse individuals to explore, discuss and identify vexing needs. You can find more on our work as a convener on our Initiatives page.
The Community Foundation as an Educator.
Local professional advisors rely on information they have learned from staff members at the Community Foundation. We are committed to providing support to the professional advisors in the community through annual seminars, a weekly e-newsletter, online gift planning and tax calculating tools and references, and one-to-one meetings.
