In our community, we have a wealth of very important and worthwhile charitable organizations. Over time, our community's needs and opportunities change, and nonprofit organizations have emerged and grown in large numbers to address these issues head-on. The number of nonprofits organizations and churches serving Madison County is estimated to be as high as 1,000 organizations. Whether your organization is just emerging or has deep roots in our region, we want to partner with you to increase your impact in our community.
Our mission to serve as the trustee of our community’s future involves a commitment to ensuring that nonprofit organizations in our region have the information and resources required to operate in an efficient and effective manner. We do this in two primary ways. First, we work with nonprofit organizations who want to establish nonprofit funds at the Community Foundation to better secure their financial future. Second, we offer an annual collaborative training event – NonProfit University – to provide professional development for nonprofit boards and staff.
In recognition of the positive impact the Community Foundation has had on our community's Quality of Life, as well as its support of the local nonprofit community, the Community Foundation was awarded the 2016 Chamber of Commerce's Small Business Awards Nonprofit of the Year.
