Quality of Life Annual Appeal

The Community Foundation is excited to announce that, due to many generous donors, we met our 26th Year Quality of Life Annual Appeal goal! We set a goal of $26,000 by year-end, and we surpassed that with a total of $28,780 raised! These donations will be allocated to The Foundation's Unrestricted Community Fund, the Arts & Cultural Fund, or a fund of the donors' choice.

Thank you to all those who contributed to our appeal!
