Benefits of Giving Through the Community Foundation

In 1991 The Community Foundation of Howard County was established. Its purpose is to make the community a better place through the accumulation and stewardship of enduring charitable funds. This is done by allowing forward-thinking folks to work together to create a reservoir of charitable funds that can be used to make an impact across a wide spectrum of community needs.

A broad range of options is available to allow people who want to make Howard County a better place to make financial contributions of any size. The primary way that the Foundation enables this activity is through the establishment of endowed funds. These funds are carefully managed so that there will be income from the fund for the donor's purpose. In certain situations funds that are not endowed can be an important part of our mission.

A wide array of options is available to allow donors to act within their personal situations to make Howard County a better place to live, work, and raise a family. Feel free to call us at (765) 454-7298, or contact us to schedule an appointment to further discuss your interests.
