Town Funds

We all want our community to be the best it can be. Not just for us, but for everyone who lives there. And not just now, but for the future. Whether you establish a Town Fund or make a gift to an existing Town Fund, you become part of a permanent endowment, helping your community in perpetuity.

The funds support innovative programs and services that help make life safer, healthier, and more enjoyable for all members of the community in the areas of health and human services, recreation, community building, environmental protection, and the arts.

Each Town Fund is led by a volunteer community board with a deep understanding of local needs and the local nonprofits that address them. These committee members oversee fundraising, review applications based on published criteria and recommend grants to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
