Community Builders

Almost 20 years ago, our community’s leading businesses and philanthropists were asked to “honor our past and imagine our future”. Our forty three Founders strongly believed that a community foundation would be a tremendous asset to our county, by building permanent charitable capital, making philanthropic grants, and proving services that contribute to the health and vitality of our community.

The Founders Fund is an endowed fund which benefits the operations of the Community Foundation. New donors to the Fund are knows as Community Builders for their commitment to supporting the work of the Community Foundation forever and receive special recognition.
