Supporting healthy, fulfilling lives for all our neighbors.

The Community Foundation is home to two supporting organizations. Both have missions to make life better for specific groups in our county. Through their relationships with us, each qualifies as a public charity, has its own board, and recommends or awards grants based on its specific mission.
