The Concept of a Community Foundation is as ingenious as it is simple...it is a means to build, over time, substantial endowment funds for a community through contributions large and small. Consequently, gifts to your Community Foundation continue to benefit your community forever. This is philanthropy in its broadest sense.
As your partner in charitable giving, the Franklin County Community Foundation's principal function remains that of serving donors and the community by building permanent endowed funds for charitable purposes.
It is about influencing change, creating resources to enrich lives, and strengthening communities. Whatever your charitable intentions, there are ways to achieve them through your gifts to the FCCF.
