Fueling Local Philanthropy
While service and investment fees support the management and investment of your fund, these fees do not cover the other important work of the Community Foundation — building partnerships with nonprofit organizations, incubating new organizations to fill unmet needs and promoting philanthropy. Gifts and commitments to the General Fund support this work immediately and directly. The General Fund provides the resources necessary to sustain the day-to-day activities and basic needs related to our mission. For the Foundation, that includes inspiring philanthropic investments throughout southwest Washington, cultivating and supporting new donors, and providing technical assistance and advice to existing charitable organizations.
