Agency-Institutional Endowments

Many non-profit organizations and religious institutions have created endowment funds within the Community Foundation for the future support of their missions.

These funds are structured to serve their intended charitable purpose(s) in perpetuity.

The amount available for distribution is carefully established by the Foundation to ensure the preservation and long-term growth of each endowment fund.

Contributions to these endowments may be made at any time with cash, securities, real estate or other types of assets. Or, contributions also may be made at a future date through deferred gifts such as life insurance, qualified retirement benefits, bequests, charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities.

Please contact the Community Foundation by telephone or e-mail and we will guide you through the process of making an immediate or deferred gift to one or more of these agency endowments.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.
