November 2019

Forever Fund Event
Thank you to everyone who donated during our 2019 campaign! If anyone asks where you got your coffee mug or t-shirt, that is your opportunity to help spread the word about the great investment you made in the future of our communities and to tell them why you give to the Forever Fund! The 2020 campaign started October 1, 2019. Remember, you can always set up automatic monthly payments at your bank, donate by credit card on our website, or use a charitable IRA rollover!

We're thankful for our donors, volunteers, and other community partners. 

The Community Foundation will be CLOSED November 28th and 29th to celebrate the holiday with our families.
