Volunteer - Hunter Brayton

During the months of March and April, we worked with KCC student Hunter Brayton who volunteered to solicit gifts to the Forever Fund. KCC includes Service Learning as part of their graduation requirement (SERV 200). Hunter met with Colleen in person and they communicated and tracked the project’s progress on Basecamp. Results: Hunter got 12 donations totaling $590.00, including 6 new donors, 2 current donors giving for the first time to the Forever Fund, and he changed the status of 4 past donors from “inactive” to "active".

Impacting Our Communities Through Grants

Giving back is one of the Community Foundation’s primary functions.  We take a portion of the income from our investment and use it to support basic needs, economic development, healthy lifestyles, the arts, youth programming, and more. Committees review applications and make recommendations to the full board for grants to nonprofits and other groups who want to make a positive social change in the communities they love.

Forever Fund Campaign


Thank you Forever Fund donors! You’ve given over $13,000 since we started our 2019 campaign. Kuddos to the 46 fabulous people who’ve given an annual donation, through weekly payroll deductions, through automatic monthly transfers from their checking account, and through their donor advised funds. Whether it’s a payroll deduction of $2 each paycheck or a one-time annual donation, every gift counts!

Did you know that you can support the Forever Fund and another cause you care about through a single gift – even payroll deductions? Just let us know how you want your contribution divided, and we make sure your gifts are allocated to the Forever Fund and one or more other funds you designate.

If you’ve never given to the Forever Fund, please consider it. There are gift levels to fit every budget - from $5 to $10,000. Learn more about what the Forever Fund supports by visiting our website or calling 517-278-4517 today!
