Norma Schuiteman Sustaining Fund

We invite you to honor Norma's service and strengthen the future of the Community Foundation by making a gift today.

In the 15 years of Norma Schuiteman’s tenure as President & CEO, the Community Foundation grew from $2 million to $25 million in assets under management. The Foundation also earned the Council on Foundation’s National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations accreditation—a rigorous review of community foundation operations. And in 2017, it launched the highly successful crowdfunding campaign called Give Local, which increases community philanthropy through online giving.  

To honor these achievements, current and former board members of the Community Foundation are creating an endowment called the Norma Schuiteman Sustaining Fund.

The Norma Schuiteman Sustaining Fund will be devoted to supporting the operations and activities of the Community Foundation so that it can serve more donors who wish to leave a charitable legacy, more nonprofits that improve the quality of life in our communities, and more students who need scholarships.

As the Community Foundation enters its next phase of growth, the capacity to adapt to evolving technology, take on new programs, and focus on the needs of donors and our communities will be vital to the success of the next President & CEO, and to the communities we serve.

We invite you to honor Norma's service and strengthen the future of the Community Foundation by making a gift to today.
