In times of crisis, communities come together in many different ways. Our government agencies offer relief and emergency support. Business leaders advocate for and drive economic relief. And, many of us want to help our neighbors, which often results in a surge of charitable giving. Philanthropy adds another layer of care to augment responses for immediate action, short-term relief and to prepare for longer-term recovery. As a community foundation, we exist first and foremost to serve our community, especially in times of critical need.
