Community foundations are unique in our ability to make an impact in so many diverse areas of community need. Our donors, with gifts large and small, help us to collectively continue to improve our communities - today and tomorrow.
With this ability to move money comes great responsibility to our donors and to our community. We persistently gather information about the most pressing local needs, and we study the many local organizations and programs working to enhance our communities. What organizations and programs are making the most difference? From where do the most exciting new ideas come? Armed with this knowledge, we make grants and direct resources to the most appropriate areas. We stay alert to emerging issues and foster both giving and volunteerism in our community.
We have the flexibility to:
- Support high-impact opportunities...those that will make the greatest difference in our communities
- Serve as a catalyst for bringing organizations into existence as new needs arise
- Re-direct funds as appropriate if and when our communities' needs change
