The first Community Foundation was established over 100 years ago, Community Foundations are set up to improve their local community and provide a means to remember a loved one or give back to the community that you have made your home?
A Community Foundation offers individuals and their families, corporations and other agencies a wealth of insight into the social, cultural, and recreational needs of their community. They bring with them years of experience in setting up and managing endowment funds and offers a tangible expression of what it means to give back and get involved in your community.
Would you like to assist in some of the activities of the Foundation as a volunteer?
