The Community Foundation of Charles County (CFCC) is overseen by a diverse volunteer board and operated by paid professional staff with expertise in understanding the community’s needs, opportunities and resources. The mission of the CFCC is to “improve the quality of life for the community of Charles County by aligning philanthropic interests with community needs through stewardship and collaboration.” To achieve the mission, the Foundation works with families, individuals, businesses, attorneys, and estate and financial planners to design gift plans that fit every economic situation, ensuring that donors receive the most benefit from their charitable contributions and that their philanthropic dollars are used to the fullest potential.
The funds established at the CFCC can be expendable funds (i.e., grants can be made in any amount at any time) or they can be endowments, which limit distributions to the interest earned on the assets. Endowments last in perpetuity.
