Thank you for supporting our vision of Thriving Philanthropy, Thriving Communities. In our 26-year history, we have built a community asset of nearly $150 million and have invested $105 million in non-profits, including over $50 million in local non-profits. We are strong and so is our region.

We are committed to your community. We work to strengthen the area where you have raised your family, built your business, or chosen to live. Here’s how:

  • Your Community Foundation is dedicated to ensuring all local children thrive. Our Board of Trustees developed a strategic plan that focuses on helping children and adolescents, from before birth through age 24, who live in poverty. Our research suggests that 1 in 3 of Mercer County’s public school children experience poverty. Beginning this fall, we’ll invest more deeply in projects that empower our community’s young people.
  • Your Community Foundation shares knowledge on issues that matter to all residents. You can attend regular events that educate our neighbors on critical issues. This year, we’ll explore best practices in college prep programs, learn about impact investing, and hold Community Meetings about our new grantmaking focus. For more information, visit our events page.
  • Your Community Foundation is also an expert on giving. With our deep knowledge of the community and nonprofit best practices, we can guide your giving. If you want to learn more about the advantages of giving through donor advised funds, we can help.
