Partners in Giving


Our youngest Partner in Giving, Carley Everson became our first “piglet”, setting a great example for young philanthropists in our communities.


Partners in Giving (PIG) is a program for individuals, families, businesses, groups, clubs – anyone that wants to support the work of the foundation without having to open a fund.

With a minimum gift of $50, you can support many initiatives that impact the region. Partners are recognized through Community Foundation communications including our website, email and print publications, news and social media. Your contribution is tax deductible.

The PIG program works a lot like a Piggy Bank: each year in May, the total amount of the PIG fund is used to support the work of the foundation. Our Board of Trustees determine the greatest needs where your donation can help our community, in the following areas:

Fund a Grant

The Community Foundation provides grant funding for nonprofit organizations, schools, and public agencies. Each year, there are more requests than we are able to award, resulting in partial funding. Partners in Giving helps supplement the grantmaking program – your participation could help to fully fund a grant award!

Support Scholarships

Thanks to generous people in our region, the Community Foundation manages over 90 funds that award nearly $500,000 in scholarships a year to students that live in communities across the region. Many of them would not be achieving their dreams of higher education without this financial support. Partners in Giving adds funding to several scholarships to boost financial assistance.

Strengthen Nonprofits

Through the Nonprofit Practices Institute (a partnership with the Icicle Fund), the Community Foundation offers workshops, trainings, and professional development opportunities for nonprofit boards, staff, and volunteers. Support from Partners in Giving helps strengthen the nonprofit sector helps to increase their effectiveness of their donors’ gifts and make a stronger impact in the communities they serve.

Protect Resources

Managing your region’s charitable investments is an important role that requires skills, leadership, and trust. Your Community Foundation works to learn and understand the needs of the community and connect with people like you who want to give back to the place we love. Partners in Giving helps to support the foundation’s operations to ensure the financial resources continue to grow and remain accessible to support charitable causes in our communities — for good, for ever.
