Our Ambassadors

In 1988, a small group of donors established the Foundation Ambassadors program. Designed to further the growth of our organization and broaden our base of major donors, this program also provides an opportunity for special supporters to be recognized for their outstanding personal commitment.

Since its modest beginning, the Foundation Ambassadors program has grown to over 530 members and counting. Today, you can become an Ambassador by creating a fund at the Community Foundation or including us in your will or estate plan. If you’d like more information or to talk about an estate gift or creating a fund, contact us! We’d be happy to talk!
