A Passion for Place
Places have an untold influence on people. Whether it’s an alma mater or a city that you hold dear, our settings tend to become a part of us.
In that way, they also set us apart. We come to define ourselves through places of worship, hometowns and neighborhoods. Each has a unique set of people, customs and stories that create a sense of belonging and our notion of home.
Some of us may consider a few places home, but one that we all share is southwest Washington. We also share passions for this place. Some of us are stewards of the lush natural surroundings, while others are improving local schools.
At the Community Foundation, we understand the value of these interests. Our organization was founded to help donors and nonprofits turn their values and visions into philanthropic pursuits. For donors, we can create charitable plans and facilitate gifts that support local causes.
