Since 1975, the Community Foundation has been making charitable giving easy, effective, and enjoyable. Although the Community Foundation is a 501(c)(3) agency, the organization is not an end-user of donor gifts. Rather, our mission is to promote philanthropy right here in Northern Colorado and maximize the impact of our community members' deep-rooted philanthropic spirit.

Giving should warm your heart, not burden you with tax complications and ongoing administrative details. Your fund at the Community Foundation can be established with a simple governing document that requires less than an hour to prepare and complete. A member of our staff will guide you carefully through the process, and you won't have to cope with the complexities of setting up a private foundation.
The Community Foundation takes pride in our ability to customize services to meet your charitable objectives. You may choose to establish a fund that supports specific charitable organizations or programs, the community's greatest areas of need, or a broad field of interest. You may also contribute to an existing fund or make an unrestricted gift that our Board of Directors will put to good use in the community on your behalf. Satisfaction will come from knowing that your contributions have been effective and have created positive change.
We know you consider your charitable gifts to be an investment --- in your community, your church, your alma mater, or whatever causes you select. Tap into the expertise of our staff, who are available to assess grant possibilities, research a giving option, or to discuss opportunities with you. We care a great deal about the impact of your gifts and will ensure that your giving experience rewards you with great satisfaction and joy.
