$42,843 Raised by 167 Donors

You care about the community, and no one knows the NRV better than the Community Foundation. We invest in our community, now and for future generations, by encouraging charitable giving, supporting innovative programs, and nurturing collaboration. As a national award winning organization, we have been featured as a model for cutting-edge philanthropy. We can be trusted to help you express your values and your commitment to the region in ways that will have the greatest long-term impact.

We keep charitable dollars in the community and support initiatives and nonprofits that meet pressing needs in the region such as food access, early childhood education & development,  and aging in place. Our scholarship program helps NRV students reach their full potential, creates a talented and skilled workforce, and cultivates future community leaders. We also build the capacity of nonprofits to use gifts wisely and operate effectively through professional development, infrastructure investments such as hosting GiveLocalNRV, and leveraging our money to attract outside funding from state and federal agencies and private foundations.  

When you donate directly to the Community Foundation, your funds support the work and administrative services that enable these programs.  You can also direct your donation to a specific scholarship or donor advised fund on the donation page.
