The Community Foundation helps the
people in our community achieve personal charitable goals with tax savings and
provides permanent endowment resources at a minimum of cost.
Foundation manages funds for the long-term financial needs of the entire community.
All Foundation funds are invested - a portion of the earnings is allocated to
our community's needs each year.
An individual may use the Community Foundation as a simple alternative to a
private foundation for making one's charitable gifts, Jewish and secular.
Community Foundation offers individuals endowment opportunities to perpetuate
support for a particular organization or area of interest. Gifts may be made during
one's lifetime or in one's estate plan. The Community Foundation accepts and manages
your fund with a variety of assets including, cash, stock or real property to
implement your estate plan.
Supporting the community through the Community
Foundation offers significant tax benefits and, in some cases, a source of income
for you for a lifetime.
The Community Foundation
is a grant making organization that provides resources through endowment funds
to develop programs for the benefit of our local Jewish agencies and other community
organizations. The Community Foundation also offers endowment programs to agencies,
synagogues and organizations that wish to establish a permanent funding source
for their ongoing needs and use the Community Foundation to professionally manage
