what WE do

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


Our main grants cycle is in full swing with over 100 volunteers evaluating grant applications and making site visits to 80 local nonprofit organizations!   

Our Young Philanthropists are busy reviewing 35 grant applications focused on education & human services for low income individuals and will decide in April how to allocate their grant budget of $20,000.
