Inspiring Philanthropy, Strengthening Communities

"I rely on the Community Foundation to provide the framework for identifying and refining the projects that promise success. They can figure out what level of financial and institutional support are necessary to bring these projects to fruition and completion. I could not do that on my own. To make as large an impact as possible with my contribution, I turn to the expertise and experience of the Community Foundation." Betsy Schermerhorn, multiyear HEROES donor and Beverly Baker Society member
