How Your Philanthropy Dollars Work Harder in a Foundation

  • We are building a permanent community resource that will provide endowment funds that will grow and benefit our community forever.

  • We help donors create an individual or family legacy and offer a simple way to fulfill multiple charitable intents, with lowcost administration, making us a good alternative to private or family
    foundations.

  • We offer personalized service, including donor and family involvement and education in selecting charities and connecting donors with strategic and highimpact funding opportunities.

  • We accept a wide variety of assets and offer maximum tax advantage.

  • All our funds stay in the community, where they benefit local organizations meeting a broad range of local needs.

  • We can preserve donor intent even when community issues and organizations change.

  • All assets are subject to audit and annual confirmation by an external accounting firm.
