The mission of the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi is to impact our communities by connecting people who care with causes that matter.
While all causes that improve a community’s quality of life are important, the Foundation has selected education, health care and young people as its top priorities. Its current strategies to address these issues are initiatives in pre-kindergarten education, prevention of childhood obesity and place-based education.
Communities served by the Foundation constitute 10 percent of the population and land of Mississippi. The service area covers eight counties:Bolivar, Coahoma, DeSoto, Marshall, Panola, Quitman, Sunflower,Tallahatchie, Tate and Tunica.
The Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi has the unique advantage of a commitment from the Maddox Foundation to match 100 percent of Endowed Funds up to $10 million in a 10-year period. This matching grant doubles the impact of any donor’s gift. This match ends December 31, 2013.
