What is a Community Foundation?

Community foundations are tax-exempt public charities that help guide philanthropy. Individuals, families, businesses and organizations work with community foundations to develop charitable funds that help meet the challenges of changing times and improve the quality of life in the areas they serve. The foundation stewards and administers these funds. For donors, community foundations offer a range of charitable giving initiatives that provide tax benefits. For the geographic region they serve, community foundations provide leadership, expertise and capital to address social issues and serve as a resource for nonprofit, civic, government and philanthropic organizations.
