Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To be a trusted philanthropic leader in the communities we serve through delivery of the highest quality donor services, customized and unique grant and scholarship programs, and bold initiatives to address community needs.

A community where nonprofits have the resources they need to achieve their goals.

Knowledge of and Commitment to our Community, Accountability and Transparency, Community Collaboration, Donor Engagement, Guided Investment and Financial Management, Nonprofit Advocacy

We have a devoted Board and Staff with three main objectives. 1) Maximize Human Resource Potential, 2) Advance Philanthropy Across All Generations Throughout Our Community, 3) Provide Leadership in Nonprofit Resources and 4) Provide Exceptional Donor, Financial and Scholarship Management.

There is always room for improvement but we believe we are working diligently in these areas. Most recently we have been given and have renovated the Eastham House which is home for the Community Foundation and six other nonprofit organizations and is known as the Plecker Center for Community Philanthropy. Assets are growing which means more grant dollars for nonprofit organizations.
