What makes us different?
You want to do good. We can help you do better. Check out the Foundation Difference! Accessibility You don’t need millions to be a philanthropist. You can create a charitable fund for as little as $10,000 or $3,300 a year for 3 years. Flexibility You can set up a Donor-Advised Fund, a Student Aid Fund, tailor your gifts to a particular field, or trust them to the Foundation’s discretion to meet emerging or emergency needs. You can create a Designated Fund to help a charity today, a permanent endowment for their needs tomorrow – or a combination of the two. Your Gift Works Now and Forever. Carry on the memory of someone dear to you 100 years from now, nonprofits or deserving students will be receiving grants from your fund in memory of someone you cared about. Responsiveness You’ll find real people answering our phone, you’ll see our faces on this website, you’ll meet us at Foundation events and you’ll find that everyone in our office is available to answer your questions. Inclusivity Our grantmaking and our development efforts focus on all segments of our communities. Credibility We know the territory. We understand the nonprofit world and realize the best way to serve these organizations is to help them become more self-reliant by awarding grants to support their programs. Permanence We’ve been here since 1981. Gifts made today will not only increase in value many times over, but will support unforeseen community needs for generations yet to come.
