pouches community give

The Community Foundation connects donors with nonprofit organizations that serve the current and future needs of the people throughout our region. It provides broad community leadership by bringing diverse groups of individuals and organizations together to develop community-wide solutions for problems and issues.

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 the foundation are passionate about. The goal for this year’s event is to raise one million dollars in the 24-hour period.
