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 nonprofit organizations and churches serving Madison County is estimated to be higher than 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 is to improve the quality of life in our community through philanthropy. We believe that when we invest in our nonprofit community, that investment can reap huge dividends. One of the key ways to achieve this is to support existing, local nonprofit organizations. We are committed to supplying nonprofit organizations in our region the information and resources they need to operate in an efficient and effective manner.
We make grants of financial support directly to nonprofit organizations on behalf of our donors through their donor advised funds, and solicit grant applications for specific competitive program opportunities using funds from our funds and endowments.
We work to build capacity in the nonprofit community by presenting an annual collaborative training event to provide professional development for nonprofit boards, staff, and volunteers.
We partner with nonprofit organizations who want to establish nonprofit funds at the Community Foundation to better secure their financial future.
