what WE do

The Community Foundation is the most effective and efficient way to turn your compassion into action.


On October 18th the Foundation kicked off the 2018 appeal at Waveny House where Board, staff, donors and members of the 54 member committee celebrated and enjoyed a nice autumn evening together.

The Foundation President met with the Kids Care program at South, a group focused on teaching the importance of giving back to young kids. The group read The Giving Tree and created leaf rubbings with their ideas on how to give back to their community.
