What is a community foundation?

Community foundations are tax-exempt public charities that help to improve the quality of life for people in their local towns. Donors create and build philanthropic funds that are held and managed by community foundations. Guided always by donors’ intentions, the foundations ensure that grants for the good of the community are made to nonprofit organizations and scholarships awarded to worthy students.
