A community foundation is a charity created by and for the people in a local area. These foundations allow local donors to take an organized approach to giving, and to better understand the needs in their region. Of the more than 650 community foundations nationwide, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is among the oldest and largest.
Our fundamental purpose is to improve the well-being of every community we serve. Many community foundations are dedicated to a city or county; our Foundation is one of the few with a statewide span and was one of the first to develop a regional structure. Seven regions tap local leadership and expertise. Both the breadth of vision and deep local knowledge can help you focus your giving where it will have the greatest impact.
Over the last four decades, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation has launched initiatives and built trusted partnerships with a diverse array of individuals, families, corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies. These partners represent many different backgrounds, income levels, and political sensibilities. Our work together is living proof that collaboration better serves the public good.
