Imagine how far we can go and what we can do—together!

Contributing to the Community Endowment is a way to create change in many areas, over many years, with one act of kindness.

Why Give

Together your gift, when combined over time with your neighbors’ and friends’ gifts will grow to a deep and unending resource to meet pressing community needs. Your gift will make it possible to help in times of crisis. Your gift will address the entrenched problems that take time and money to change.

We cannot know what challenges our grandchildren will face. We do know that a gift to the Community Endowment will always be important to our region, and most of all, available when needed.
