What is a Community Foundation?

Foundations Play a Nationwide Role in Public Philanthropy

Community foundations are the fastest growing sector of philanthropy in the United States. There are currently about 700 community foundations across the country with combined assets of over $31 billion. Community Foundations are a popular choice for donors because of the services we provide connecting donor interests with community needs.
