Begin your journey by exploring the Quality of Life Framework below. When we invest in these eight areas, we can strategically shape the path of our community today and to position us for a stronger tomorrow. Your interests, giving priorities, and vision for our community shape the direction of your gift. Begin by determining one or more areas of need that you care about passionately, and the Community Foundation can help guide you to the opportunities that meet your philanthropic goals. As a result of your investment, you can "move the needle" in these key community areas.
Donors who want to see an immediate impact of their donations are drawn to our Community Compass Funds. Funds in this area support current, specific projects or initiatives across the eight areas of the Quality of Life Framework that make our great community even better right now. Donors can make a difference in areas of need that they care about passionately.
Visionary donors with a drive to create longterm, strategic solutions are drawn to the Compass Society. Member donations are evenly divided between current year grantmaking and an endowment. Give forever by adding your gift to a growing endowment that will support the quality of life in our area for generations to come. Click to learn more or donate below.
