Giving in Worth County
Charitable, community-minded people who want to do good in their community to support the causes they care about can do so with the Worth County Community Foundation. The Worth County Community Foundation connects people who love Worth County to the organizations serving its residents and improves the quality of life in the communities they care about through the creation of charitable funds. These funds help the Foundation meet our county's needs by providing grantmaking that supports our core program areas of arts and culture, community betterment, education and youth development, environment and animal welfare, health, and human service.
