They provide broad community leadership by bringing diverse groups of individuals and organizations together to develop community- wide solutions for problems and issues. The Community Foundation receives gifts from individuals, corporations and organizations. These gifts are named and placed in endowment funds and invested to generate earnings. The Community Foundation coordinates with fund advisors to use these earnings to distribute grants to a variety of nonprofi t programs, organizations and community-oriented charitable efforts that benefi t area residents and organizations, as well as to distribute scholarships to local students. On May 3, the foundation will sponsor the third annual Community Give, a 24-hour online event when thousands of people will donate hundreds of thousands of dollars—the most raised in a single day—to support the issues and charities they are passionate about.
