Community Foundations are:

  • Tax-exempt public charities dedicated to improving the communities they serve.
  • Comprised of many funds established by separate donors to carry out their charitable interests to improve communities within a defined geographic area.
  • Based on a philanthropic model of endowed funds – invested to grow over the long-term, with the earnings available annually for charitable giving.
  • Designed to pool donations for coordinated investment to provide sustained long term support for that region in the form of grants, scholarships and other resources.
