Through our donors and competitive grant making programs, the Community Foundation provides funding to nonprofits. Although grant making is important, the Community Foundation is committed to serving nonprofits in a variety of ways. Supporting nonprofits with capacity building and technical assistance so they have the resources they need to fulfill their missions is one of the important ways we work in our region.
Nonprofit Capacity Building and Technical Assistance
Whether you attend one of our training workshops, host your next board meeting in our office, lease space for your office or simply receive our e-newsletter, the Foundation offers nonprofit organizations the opportunity to connect, learn, and share with our staff and others.
For an established nonprofit organization that is interested in long-term financial sustainability, an agency endowment fund is one way to make the best use of the donations received. Working with the Foundation offers a cost-effective investment option and frees your staff from time consuming administrative and investment responsibilities so you can remain focused on your core mission. Nonprofits gain access to diversity of investments, oversight, benchmarks and standards difficult to achieve with a portfolio of your own.
