Nonprofits

Partnering with the Community Foundation

We’ve been building relationships with the nonprofit community for decades. We want you to succeed, because strong nonprofits make our community a better place to live and thrive.

We can help in multiple ways:

  • Depending on the services your nonprofit offers and the clients you serve, you may be eligible to participate in our grants processes. These challenge grants provide funding to nonprofits through competitive, twice-yearly cycles.
  • You can create a nonprofit endowment fund with the Community Foundation, which ensures that your organization will have a permanent resource providing a reliable, annual stream of support. Because of the Leighton Endowment, we’re able to waive administrative fees on most endowed funds—which means that your investment grows more quickly.
  • We regularly create opportunities for professional development and peer conversation among our nonprofit partners. You can find current opportunities on our events page.
