Across America communities face big challenges as economies change, populations shift, and government resources dramatically decline. Your Florence Community Foundation offers a solution – a vehicle to help preserve our community’s existing wealth.

Founded in 2011 by a group of dedicated Florence citizens, the mission of the Florence Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of educational, cultural, civic and economic life in Florence both today and in the future by:

  • Enabling donors to fulfill their charitable interests
  • Building a permanent endowment
  • Facilitating prudent management and care of funds
  • Meeting community needs through grants, awards, and  scholarships

Please refer to the Florence Community Foundation Brochure for more information.
