At the Foundation for Community Partnerships we see angels every day. Each of the 70 charitable groups supported by the Foundation provides a much-needed service to our community. From engaging our youth (Bully Free Community, Character Counts!, Partnering for Youth), to providing for the welfare of animals (Animal Welfare League, Dancing for the Dogs, TomCat Solutions), protecting the environment (Corsica River Conservancy), or assisting those in need (Adopt-a-Bear, Caring and Sharing), they make the community better by creating lasting legacies of caring.
In order for these organizations to remain strong and focused on their mission, they have chosen the Foundation for Community Partnerships to manage their funds. Our work is mostly behind the scenes, where we strengthen the efforts of amazing volunteers, secure grants, and offer assistance in a wide variety of operational areas. We collaborate with government, businesses, and other non-profits to identify problems and bring people together to work toward solutions that improve the quality of life for all. And by efficiently administering the resources of these diverse groups--only 2% of donations is used for administration --98 cents of every dollar donated to the Foundation is spent on direct services.
The Foundation encourages you to support these worthwhile organizations. Donations can be made to the Foundation or to any one of our funds. DONATE NOW
