Community Supporting Community

I consider myself to be philanthropic, however, I am an extremely busy person. When I give through Community Foundation I have assurances that my gifts address current needs and benefit a number of people via a gamut of local organizations. Community Foundation provides “one-stop shopping” for the common good. Minimum time—maximum good. . .Works for all. - Dr. Steven V. Beer, Professor Emeritus, Cornell University
