Why Give

Why Give

In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.


Take a minute to consider the impact of charitable giving in our society--the programs and services established to benefit the less fortunate and the lives forever changed.

By giving through the Community Foundation, you can support the charitable causes that are important in your life. You come to the Community Foundation with a unique and passionate reason for giving. Our passion is to make your charitable goals a reality.

So you ask again... why give?
And we answer... to support your passions now and forever. We're here to help you--through an endowed fund, an estate gift, a bequest through a will, and many
other types of funds.

Let's explore the options together and make your "Why Give" a reality.
