Let’s find the best way for you to make an impact.
Since 1991, the Community Foundation of Boone County has worked to improve the quality of life for Boone County residents by building strong relationships with local nonprofits and community partners. We serve as a facilitator between people and organizations to promote partnerships and collaboration that will create vibrant communities.
The power of the Community Foundation is its ability to bring together people and their resources to make an impact on the local communities. Your gift, combined with those from other caring individuals, multiplies the positive effect on our communities for generations to come.
We believe that everyone can be a philanthropist. You do not have to be a wealthy individual, nor do you need to start a fund to make a difference. Through our Community Impact Fund, all gifts are pooled together – no gift too small or too large – so that everyone plays a role in helping Boone County nonprofits change the lives of our community members.
Learn more about the various types of funds we manage, each with a different point of focus. Donate to the funds you are passionate about. Want to support something you don’t see on the list? Contact us to learn how to set up your own fund!
