Community Compass Funds

We believe that together we can accomplish more than any one individual, company, or organization can do alone. Join like-minded citizens, leaders, and philanthropists who believe in the power of collective giving to generate positive change in our community today. The Community Compass Funds offer a path to connect with immediate projects and initiatives that strategically shape the path of our community today and position us for a stronger tomorrow.  

The Community Compass Funds are different from individual giving options because they:

  • Group gifts from donors who are interested in making an impact in a shared area of interest.
  • Are entrusted to the Board of Directors, staff and appointed committees for evaluating needs and administering the grant making process.

Where to begin?

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.
