Mission Funds

A gift to a mission fund will live forever and give forever.

Mission funds are endowed funds that support a specific area of interest. Each year, the Community Foundation awards Community Grants in our mission areas through a competitive application process. 

Mission Areas

  • Arts & Culture
  • Education
  • Environment
  • Helping People
  • Wellness

If you are passionate about one of these mission areas, consider a gift to a mission fund that will support our communities now and for future generations.
