Campaign / Fund Development Assistance
If your organization is planning a capital campaign or fund drive, we can:

•Provide campaign plan assistance
•Receive and deposit gifts
•Offer online giving to your fund
•Process stock gifts
•Prepare gift/tax receipts
•Maintain a donor database

Non-Traditional Scholarship Program Administration
The Foundation has a rich history of administering scholarship funds that benefit students in our service area.

We work with private companies, civic organizations and nonprofit groups who wish to fund scholarship programs that are outside the traditional endowment model.  We can establish a program designed to accomplish your specific goals.

Grant Services
New community initiatives often need the support of an established tax-exempt organization to receive funding.  If you have identified a potential funding source, the Foundation can act as applicant and fiduciary for grants from major foundations and other funding sources.

Operating Support Services
Organizations that have an endowed fund can receive “back office” support.  If you don’t have your own accounting staff, consider creating an operating fund. Allow us to:

•Write the checks you authorize
•Deposit your receipts
•Provide fund activity reports
•Present information at board meetings
