Community Partnerships

The Community Foundation is dedicated to strengthening our community for present and future generations. To fulfill this mission, we actively seek partnerships with local corporations, government agencies, other private foundations and a variety of nonprofit community groups to leverage our resources for maximum impact.

We have five distinct priorities for our community partnerships:

  • Housing
  • Education
  • Community revitalization
  • Diversity and race relations
  • Regionalism initiatives involving neighboring counties
