Helping You Meet Your Charitable Goals

Our staff will work closely with your professional advisors—including attorneys, CPAs, and financial planners—to help you achieve your charitable goals. Along the way, we'll take care of administrative and legal paperwork, saving you time, effort and money.

Here are a few of the other things we're excited to provide you:

Strategic Guidance, Flexibility and Planning

Our professional staff specialize in helping our fundholders get the most out of their charitable investments. We share our in-depth community knowledge to help you identify the charitable organizations aligned with your areas of interest. CFNEIA staff understand the areas of need in our region and can help you make an impact. We also handle all administration, financial stewardship and grantmaking due diligence so you can focus on what’s important – making grants to the organizations you care about in your community.

Leave a Legacy

CFNEIA offers many options for you to extend your legacy to your community after your lifetime, including those that can include your family. By becoming a member of our Legacy Society, you show your commitment to enhancing the quality of life in your community.


We carefully vet all nonprofits that receive Community Foundation grants. All grants are subject to a rigorous due diligence process, ensuring that the recipient is registered as a public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Recognition and Anonymity

If you wish for your giving to remain anonymous, we will ensure that your identity is kept confidential. If you prefer to promote your fund, our marketing and development staff can work with you to create a public relations plan.
