Donors Who Give Back

When we ask our donors why they choose to establish funds here, we often hear them say, “I want to give back.” When you decide to give back through the Foundation, we help you to make your philanthropy personal, meaningful, and fulfilling. It’s our privlege to connect donors – and your charitable interests and resources – with local needs.
