Community foundations have a long history of supporting local and regional philanthropic efforts in the United States. In fact, the Cleveland Foundation—the nation’s first community foundation—dates back to 1914.* According to the Council on Foundations, there are more than 750 community foundations across the United States today.
A community foundation is a public charity that typically focuses on supporting charities within a specific geographical area or a particular cause. They derive most of their financial support from local donors and are governed by a board of directors or trustees. Community foundations typically accept charitable donations and grant funds to a wide variety of causes, such as community services, the arts, education, the environment, health, and disaster relief within a specific geographic region.
Program officers and other staff members at community foundations generally have a deep understanding of the local community and can leverage that knowledge to direct charitable funds where they can make the biggest impact. They often serve to bring people together who want to focus their funds and time on a common cause within a specific geographic region. - FIDELITY LEARNING CENTER 2020
