Making a Gift

For more than 35 years, the Community Foundation has helped donors fulfill their philanthropic goals to create meaningful impact with their charitable dollars. Here are some of the ways contributing to the Community Foundation is a simple, effective, and valuable process.

Customizable

When you make a gift to the Community Foundation, you tell us where you want to make an impact. By partnering with the Community Foundation, your charitable dollars will always serve the purpose you intended.

Flexible

We work with gifts of all sizes and donors at every level of giving. The Community Foundation can help every donor find the best charitable-giving solution to match their stage of life and their preferred level of giving.

Powerful

When you make a contribution to the Community Foundation, your gift has the power to go far. We accept gifts from hundreds of individuals and organizations each year, which enables us to pool gifts from donors who share common interests and increase the dollars available to invest in a cause.

Strategic

Our team is always ready to work with you directly to determine your vision for the future and how you wish to help. Either through personal, one-on-one conversations or by working with your professional advisor, we help you create giving solutions that reflect your personal values, motivations, and goals.

Impactful

A gift to the Community Foundation can have an impact both now and in the future. If you make a gift to an endowment, it becomes part of a permanent pool of assets that supports charitable causes in perpetuity. In time, as the endowment grows, it produces more charitable dollars that go back into the community. The gift you make today keeps giving forever.

Please contact us so we can learn about your charitable interests. By giving to the Community Foundation, we leverage the impact of your gift and assure that the purpose of every gift is carried out in perpetuity.
