COMMUNITY

Improving Our Community

Part of our mission is to help increase knowledge and awareness about the issues in our county that impact the economy and quality of life. At CFAAC, we believe that one of the best ways to improve our community is by strengthening nonprofits doing vital, smart and innovative work in our region. A strong nonprofit community is a collaborative one made up of organizations that effectively manage operations and high-performing programs based on community need. 

 

Here to Help

Whether you are a business owner trying to grow an employee giving program, a family ready to create your own giving legacy, a professional advisor committed to helping your client maximize their philanthropic strategy, or a nonprofit looking to partner with CFAAC's community fundraising efforts - CFAAC is here to help inspire, strengthen and grow philanthropy in our community.

A Community Foundation has three distinct features; it is the combination of these features that provides unique opportunities for donors and for the community.

Personalized Service:

We make giving easy and effective, accepting a wide variety of gifts and providing donors a number of charitable options. You can contribute cash, stocks, property, and bequests. You may establish a fund in your name or in the name of a loved one.

Local Expertise:

Our professional staff has an in-depth understanding of the issues, opportunities, and resources that shape our community. CFAAC monitors all areas of community need—including human services, education, the environment, healthcare, the arts, and economic development. We can help you learn more about local organizations and programs that make a difference in areas you care about most.

Community Leadership:

We are building an endowment that will provide a permanent source of funds to meet the needs of future generations. As the endowment grows, so does our ability to provide support for essential community efforts. One of those efforts, our Community Needs Assessment, brings people and organizations together by convening diverse voices to address local issues and opportunities. CFAAC is also committed to improving our community by strengthening the nonprofits doing vital, smart and innovative work in our region through our Help Our Neighbors, Grants 4 Teachers, Ladders to SUCCESS and Strengthening Nonprofits grant programs.

CFAAC is here to help inspire, strengthen and grow philanthropy in our community.
