Community Grant Fund
Meeting ever-changing community needs.When you donate to the Community Grant Fund, your gift addresses a broad range of local needs and enables your Community Foundation’s program experts to respond to the community’s most pressing needs, today and tomorrow.
How it works:
Earnings are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift — and all future earnings from your gift — is a permanent source of community capital, helping to do good work forever.
A Lasting Legacy
Peggy and Ed Gibb always made giving to their community a personal priority. In meetings with their professional advisor, they began to consider including a bequest that would benefit their local community. “Peggy and I care a lot about this town,” says Ed. “We wanted to give in a way that would continually help the people who live here. ” After considering their options, the Gibbs decided to give to the Community Grant Fund. “By giving to the Community Grant Fund, we were able to keep our gift from becoming outdated. Community needs change, so we wanted to make sure our gift wasn’t too narrowly focused,” says Peggy. “Because it’s endowed at the community foundation, our gift will make a difference forever,” Ed says. “It will grow over time and become a more and more valuable asset for our community. This is exactly the legacy Peggy and I want to leave. ”
