The Foundation was established over 65 years ago to respond to communal needs that could not be anticipated, and that is even truer today. We remain a pillar of stability in responding to COVID-19 while being fully committed to helping you achieve your charitable goals, particularly at year-end. An ideal way to respond to COVID-19 and fulfill other philanthropic passions is by opening a Donor Advised Fund with us. We're proud to partner with hundreds of families every year in their charitable giving, and together improve our community. Visit our COVID-19 Response Hub or learn more about opening a Donor Advised Fund today.
