Conveying Family Legacies and Values.

Time and time again, we hear the next generation express how their grandparent’s stories have strengthened their sense of identity.  For generations, conveying family legacies and values helped build a culture for the future.

Your passion could be education, land preservation, culture, or beautifying your community, all for generations to enjoy in the future.  We all want to leave our mark.  But, how do we do it?

The Community Foundation has their finger on the pulse of the community and the local nonprofits; we have the ability to be proactive in directing grants to those organizations with the greatest need.  It is the donors choice whether to designate funds to specific needs, or to choose to let the Community Foundation Board award grants that can make a difference in the lives of our community members.

The Community Foundation is a very well run philanthropic organization.  Our Board is professional, hardworking, diverse, and talented.  They are forward thinking, and excellent stewards of our donors gifts.

A planned gift will help sustain the Community Foundation for years to come and help make a difference in the community.  We will invest the money wisely and it will address community needs.

Every day, people from all walks of life make gifts to charity through their trusts. It’s so simple, and it does make a tremendous difference in the world they leave behind.

If you are interested in creating your own legacy, the Community Foundation can help you.

Happy Holidays
