Broad Field of Interest

The Community Foundation has established endowed, broad field of interest funds to help address critical needs in specific areas — today and into the future. The funds can accept donations from anyone passionate about these topics who wants to take charge of change and help make a difference.

Support Your Community

We love our communities. They are the places where we’ve raised and educated our children, enjoyed neighbors and our neighborhoods, and earned a good living. We have funds that support each of the eight counties in our service area: Genesee; Livingston; Monroe; Ontario; Orleans; Seneca; Wayne; and Yates. Contributions of any amount and from any individual, organization, or business will support the essential work of nonprofits that keep our communities strong and vital.

Giving is Always Easy at the Community Foundation
