Understanding Our Region
The Community Foundation constantly studies the needs in our community, engaging experts and interested citizens to discuss issues and solutions. We are leaders, dialogue starters, icebreakers, liaisons and advocates.
Resource for Nonprofits
We provide so much more than grants. The Community Foundation is more than a gateway to grant giving. While we provide grants to nonprofits, we also support them after the funding cycle by coaching and developing the leadership they need to build a strong organization that is part of a greater network of like organizations in the region. Our goal is to strengthen the infrastructure of nonprofit agencies capable of affecting the greatest change in our community – a mission that extends beyond funding and involves continual and meaningful conversation and interaction.
When We Start Talking, We Start Solving
It works. We’ve witnessed inspiring and passionate conversations, seen the spark of idea ignite into action and a regional partnership with nonprofit organizations or “tribe” that continues beyond a grant or project. This multi-agency collaboration produces better fundraising strategies and creates a united effort to solve challenges. The team approach also aids our mission in acquiring national funding sources while fulfilling our commitment of delivering a return on investment for every single donor, every single dollar. Working with our nonprofit partners, we are demonstrating visible impact on the issues. We don’t just talk. We aspire to solve.
