What is a Foundation?

Community foundations invest in their communities to make them better places to live, work and play.  They bring people together who care very much about their community and offer them different funding options to provide support for their community and achieve their personal charitable goals.

The Elkhorn & Area Foundation invests the contributions it receives in a perpetuity endowment fund and uses the income earned to make grants to a wide range of charitable groups—grants that benefit our local communities. Anyone can become involved in helping to build the assets of the Foundation—individuals, families, corporations and groups.  Your gift to the Foundation will benefit the community now and into the future.

Community Foundations of Canada states that the network of local leaders and the knowledge they hold about their communities across the country is one of their greatest assets. They put that knowledge to work for people interested in giving—connecting donor passions with community needs to have a significant and long-term impact.

Elkhorn & Area Foundation is proud to be a member of Community Foundations of Canada.
