Why give to a Community Foundation?
There are as many reasons to give to a community foundation as there are potential donors. And there are ultimately no right or wrong reasons, since each donation makes a positive impact on our community, regardless of the rationale behind it.
Have you, your children, your parents, or your friends, ever been involved with a local organization? Were you a 4-H member while you were in school? Do you participate in Big Brothers Big Sisters? Do you believe in the missions of the Red Cross or the Genesis Food Bank so much that you donated your food or your time to them? Do you want a loved one's memory to continue through grants distributed from a fund in their name? Priorities like these can be important reasons to establish a fund at the Thomas County Community Foundation. Why? Because what you and your family value are at the heart of why you donate time and money to causes that you believe in. Many local non-profits depend upon outside donations to maintain operations--and the establishment of donor-advised and/or donor-designated endowed funds ia a way to to play a perpetual part in things that matter to you.
Why not become a donor today. Join us in our quest to enrich the lives of our loved ones--and to help keep life in Thomas County great.
