We were astounded and humbled by the deep generosity of many in our community as we received close to $20 million in contributions to Donor Service funds here at CFHZ. These gifts ranged in size from $25 to $7 million, and combined with nearly $1 million in gifts to our Community’s Endowment, led to CFHZ’s 2018 contributions totaling close to $21 million. That is more than double our previous high of $9.7 million!
Our Community's Endowment has made a positive, lasting impact on 12 local nonprofits this year through competitive grant awards in the amount of $550,200.

’Tis the season when many people are considering their year-end charitable giving. It is our favorite time of year at the Community Foundation because we never cease to be inspired by the generosity in our community. This year many are considering the new landscape laid out by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (The Act) signed into law in December of 2017 as they determine how and how much they are going to give this year.
Thank you to all who were able to attend our "A Growing Promise" Fall Celebration Event. It truly was an incredible night filled with delicious food, great people, and an inspirational program.
