    We facilitate meetings among multi-generational families. We host learning events to provide local perspective on emerging trends, best practices and critical community needs, and we manage and support hundreds of volunteer projects annually. Your involvement with the Community Foundation means you are joining a community that is dedicated to advancing regional solutions and nurturing generosity to do more good.
