Generosity + Strategy = Philanthropy

Our community is one built on dreams of what the world might look like when we come together to accomplish a goal. At our core, we are a city of dreamers… of innovators… of visionaries.

Whether it is involves putting a man on the moon, being on the cutting edge of technology to defend our country, or unlocking the mysteries that are bound within our DNA, we have proven that no challenge is too great when we work together to solve it.

At the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville, we believe that the best is yet to come. Our dream is that our community will come together and will use this same spirit of passion and innovation to solve our most critical challenges affecting our quality of life. And we are working hard to make dreams for a better future come true through the power of generosity.
