How to Contribute

As a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the sole source of financial support for the Community Fund is the bequests and contributions of area residents and businesses. The organization does not directly solicit donations, but welcomes the community's generosity as the size of the endowment impacts the scope, quantity and quality of the grants and awards it issues.  LEARN MORE
