Community Leadership

We invest in the long term and bring people and organizations together, convening diverse voices to address local issues and opportunities as well as coordinating resources to create positive change. Our business is building community.


We provide highly personalized service tailored to each individual’s charitable and financial interests. We also can work with your existing financial advisor to ensure your charitable goals are met.


We make giving easy and effective, accepting a wide variety of gifts and assets as well as offering maximum tax advantage for most gifts under federal law.


We multiply the impact of gift dollars by pooling them with other gifts and grants.


We build endowment funds that benefit the community forever and help create personal legacies.

The Foundation offers numerous creative and rewarding ways to donate to the community, some with significant tax advantages. We encourage prospective donors to contact either the Foundation directly or a professional advisor to learn more about philanthropic opportunities.
