How to Make an Impact

  • Chris & Suzy Brucemore

    Establish a Fund

    We can establish a fund in your name, the name of your family or business, or in honor of any person or organization you choose. There are many types of funds available and we can help you choose the right one. If you choose an endowed fund, your gift—and all future earnings — will support the causes you care about most, forever.

  • Make Meaningful Gifts

    Based on the type of fund you choose to establish, you can be involved in the work your gift supports. You can make a charitable recommendation or rely on the experienced staff at the Community Foundation to determine the areas of greatest need in our community. With Board approval, the Community Foundation will issue grants in the name of the fund you establish. The best part? We handle all the administrative details.
