A Fund For Good. Forever.

The Campaign for Our Community has a simple goal—to raise $10 million for an endowment that will yield more than $400,000 annually, and grow continually, to address community concerns as they arise and take care of our region long into the future. Today. Tomorrow. Every year. Forever.

The Community Fund Grants were modest in 2017. They have grown since then and will continue to grow as the Community Endowment builds. Imagine what we will do when the Community Endowment reaches $10,000,000!

Fund Advisory Committee
The Community Fund grants are chosen by a committee of Community Foundation board members, staff, and community volunteers. Are you interested in helping to choose the 2020 Community Fund grants? Download the Community Fund Advisory Committee Application and submit it by Friday, July 26, 2019.

2019 Grants

Six organizations were chosen to receive grants from the Community Fund in 2019. These programs were rewarded because they touch the most vulnerable in our community in vital ( perhaps life-saving) and lasting ways.
