Resources for Charities

In May and June 2019 the Community Foundation hosted three Partner Luncheons for our local charitable organizations as a way to share the results of the Charity Survey conducted in April and May. We learned that many of you have specific needs and questions about our services. Below are some links to provide you more information and a little more of a description for engaging your organization with our services. Please reach out to set up a meeting with any of respective staff to ensure you can utilize our services to the highest level.
