Flexible Giving

At The Community Foundation, we honor your intent to give by providing structure and flexibility. There are multiple ways you can invest in your community without starting a fund. Visit our Ways to Give page for more information.

Supporting Future Leaders

The Community Foundation supports student achievement through scholarships to technical colleges and 4-year universities. Starting a fund or investing in one of our scholarship funds is a valuable way to give back.
