What is a Community Foundation?

We are part of a rapidly growing field of more than 600 community foundations, acting as community savings accounts for regions around the country. We are a non‐profit community organization created by and for the people of the Lake of the Ozarks area.

We are a foundation for the community, making grants to community organizations and building resources. We manage a variety of funds, established by families, individuals and corporations. We're here to help our donors do good work . . . Forever.

As you do your online shopping, please consider using Smile.Amazon.com to designate the Community Foundation of the Lake as your preferred recipient. It is just a couple more clicks, but it will make a big difference. Then hopefully it will become a habit every time you shop online. The proceeds go toward our annual grant round that helps many of the local not-for-profits here at the lake. Together we can make a difference!!

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.
