Giving Guide

Your motivation for giving is important, and the key to a rewarding experience is determining your values and matching them to your gifts. 


The Community Foundation developed this Giving Guide to help you determine what is most important to you and lead you through exercises that:

  • Define your values
  • Identify your interest areas
  • Create a personal mission statement
  • Help you make strategic decisions about your charitable giving


By aligning charitable giving and volunteer work with your values, life experiences and interests, you can make a meaningful difference.
