A community trust such as the Fresno Regional Foundation is a publicly supported organization which is favored by the tax laws, not only providing the maximum tax benefits to its donors but also providing for maximum flexibility in its operations and areas of service. It is, in effect, a vehicle for philanthropic-minded persons to combine their funds in one entity and create an 'endowment' for the benefit of the community.
Established in 1966, Fresno Regional Foundation is a nonprofit community foundation serving California's Central San Joaquin Valley. We work to improve lives in our community by encouraging philanthropy. We provide unique opportunities for individual donors, families, businesses, and other foundations to invest in programs that address a wide spectrum of economic, social, educational, cultural and environmental needs.
