The Community Foundation helps the people in our community achieve personal charitable goals with tax savings and provides permanent endowment resources at a minimum of cost.

The Community Foundation manages funds for the long-term financial needs of the entire community. All Foundation funds are invested – a portion of the earnings is allocated to our community’s needs each year.

In the last five years alone, we have distributed over $27 million to more than 1,600 charitable organizations.


An individual may use the Community Foundation as a simple alternative to a private foundation for making one’s charitable gifts, Jewish and secular.

The Community Foundation offers individuals endowment opportunities to perpetuate support for a particular organization or area of interest. Gifts may be made during one’s lifetime or in one’s estate plan. The Community Foundation accepts and manages your fund with a variety of assets including, cash, stock or real property to implement your estate plan.

Supporting the community through the Community Foundation offers significant tax benefits and, in some cases, a source of income for you for a lifetime.


The Community Foundation is a grant making organization that provides resources through endowment funds to develop programs for the benefit of our local Jewish agencies and other community organizations. The Community Foundation also offers endowment programs to agencies, synagogues and organizations that wish to establish a permanent funding source for their ongoing needs and use the Community Foundation to professionally manage their funds.
