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.
The fundamental purpose of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is to improve the well-being of every community it serves. Many community foundations are dedicated to a city or county; New Hampshire Charitable Foundation has 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 focus giving where it will have the greatest impact.
For 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. The fruits of this work is proof that collaboration better serves the public good.
