Community Foundations are grantmaking public charities that are dedicated to improving the lives of people in a defined local geographic area. They bring together the financial resources of individuals, families and businesses to support effective nonprofits in their communities.
Need more information? A member of our team is available to assist at email@example.com.
Our community foundation members value these membership benefits and services most:
Community Foundations self-report the Management and General Expenses portion of their Total Functional Expenses from their most recent completed fiscal year to determine their annual Council membership contribution. This is often equivalent to Section IX, Line 25, Column C in completed 990 forms.
|Management & General Expenses||Annual Dues||Plus Membership Dues|
|$149,999 & under||$1,000||$500|
|$25,000,000 & over||$45,000||$7,000|
For more information about Council policies and member eligibility, please reference our Membership Policy.
