One of the Community Foundation’s primary objectives is to increase the philanthropic pie by making it easier for people to connect to important community needs. We want to encourage our community in any way we can to put their time, treasure and talent to good use.
We have two resources to help you connect to important needs in our community.
Billion Plus Change
We have partnered with A Billion + Change, a national campaign to mobilize billions of dollars of pro bono and skills-based service to address core issues our communities face across the country and around the world. Together we will transform how businesses leverage their employees to make a lasting impact on society by engaging, inspiring and mobilizing professional talent to build the capacity of nonprofit organizations to better meet community needs.
To learn more about how your company can be part of A Billion + Change, visit abillionpluschange.org .

Charitable Connections is designed to connect donors and potential donors to local community projects in need of financial support. Registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in our 11- county area may list a current project and/or special need that cannot be met with current resources on Charitable Connections
Help support a need in your community!
