We are your community foundation since 1975.

  • We offer maximum tax advantage for gifts.
  • We multiply the impact of gift dollars by pooling them with other gifts and grants.
  • We build endowment funds benefiting the community forever and help create personal legacies.

Through the support of community members throughout the years, the Foundation has been able to award over $6.3 million in grant money.

Total grants in 2016 – $316,665

Social Services – 19%

Education – 40%

Arts – 7%

Health – 29%
