The Community Foundation has invested over $14 million into the community since 1991.

We continue our stewardship of Donor Advised, Non-Profit, Endowment and Scholarship Funds, and take pride in assisting our donors in reaching their philanthropic goals.

Your participation and donations represent a sound investment in your community. We urge you to experience the power and impact of creative philanthropy with us.
