What is a Community Foundation?
A community foundation is a special kind of public charity created by and for the people of a specific geographic area. There are almost 700 community foundations across the U.S.
While funding for many foundations comes from a single source (for example, the "Smith Family Foundation" would be funded by members of the "Smith" family), funding for a community foundation comes from the entire community - hundreds of donors who care about a particular place and want to invest in its future.
