Community Impact Fund

Help our Community Thrive and Prosper Forever.

What is the Community Impact Fund?

You don’t need to create your own fund at the Community Foundation to make our community a better place – you can make a donation of any size (and with any type of gift) to our Community Impact Fund! This fund is comprised of contributions from many different donors – your gift will be added to their dollars and magnified by the Community Foundation’s local grantmaking expertise.
