Donor Services

We work with donors of all giving abilities connect their philanthropic passions to areas of need in our region. Our Community Foundation manages over 400 named funds, from donor-advised funds for donors who want a say in how their money is used, field of interest funds to support specific causes like the environment or the arts, to undesignated funds that benefit any need in the community at a given time. Whether you have $10 or $10,000, we can help you realize your charitable goals.

Leadership Projects

As a community leader, our Community Foundation has made a commitment to work more proactively, not just reactively, to better address our region's greatest needs. Our current focus is on placemaking projects to make our region vibrant. In 2017, we launched our inaugural Penny for Your Thoughts contest to gather ideas from the community to strengthen the Michigan Avenue corridor.

Nonprofit Support

The Community Foundation helps local nonprofits, big and small, get stronger. We support nonprofits through our impact grant and mini-grant review process, where a volunteer committee meets to review proposals for programs throughout the region. In 2017, we launched a capacity building program to further support nonprofits and help them grow stronger. This can include capacity building grant awards, strengthened relationships between nonprofits and the foundation, fundraising coaching, and more.
