Help make a difference by supporting the Foundation

There are many ways to support the work at the Foundation. Currently, a group of donors are matching giving to our COVID-19 Response Fund, up to $75,000, to help us respond to local needs.  Support touches basic needs like food, utility and rental assistance, child care, and the increased behavioral health needs of our community.
