The foundation helps people structure their charitable giving.
Individuals and families often approach the foundation with an idea of a way they’d like to honor the memory of a loved one or support a cause they care about now or after they pass away. Businesses and organizations often approach the foundation to help them manage an existing scholarship or corporate charity.
In either case, a member of the foundation’s senior staff works with the people involved to determine the best way to meet their charitable objectives. Many times, but not always, it makes sense to create an endowed charitable fund at the Community Foundation.
