A donation to an endowment is unlike any other gift; it has permanence. Your gift will continue to grow and have lasting impact on our community.
When you choose to endow your gift, you have the opportunity to make a difference during your lifetime and, at the same time, provide for the community you care about for generations to come. As needs, opportunities, and the nonprofit organizations that address them change over time, your wishes are preserved, and grants continue to make life better in the name of the fund you established.
Leaders of a nonprofit organization may also look to the Community Foundation to hold their organization's endowment because they know that having a constant source of funding helps them respond to emergency needs, as well as plan for the future, and sustain the good work they do.
Gifts endowed by the Community Foundation are pooled with others to achieve maximum investment efficiency and return. They grow and benefit the community with guidance from experienced local leaders and expert investment managers.
