Gifts to the Community Foundation make a difference and connect you with your community. You can start a fund to address your specific goals or donate to an existing fund that aligns with your goals. Earnings from funds are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift – and all future earnings from your gift – is a permanent source of community capital, helping do good work forever. Or you can make a tribute gift in honor or memory of a special person, or an event in your life.
