The Community Foundation is a public charity unlike any other in the Capital Region. It exists not to support a single organization, but to address the broadest range of charitable issues by building the endowment that serves as a perpetual source of community capital.
The Foundation manages more than 325 charitable funds for individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to help fulfill their philanthropic intent. The funds are invested, and their income is used to meet the changing needs of the community. Together, these funds and their donors have a far greater charitable impact than they could individually.
