Ways to Give
Give back to the place you love.
The Community Foundation idea is simple. Anyone may use it to give something meaningful back to your community and contribute to the causes you most care about. There is also something for everyone and different ways to express your generosity and embrace the needs of our vibrant communities now and into the future.
Ways to get involved
You can create a fund in honor of someone you love or to celebrate a special event. You can direct your gift broadly or narrowly to issues you care about or to wherever the needs are greatest. You can also give to many of our existing funds. However you give, your gift can change lives—today and in the future.
