Donors use Community Foundations to Assure Nonprofit’s Needs are Met

One of today’s most powerful trends in charitable giving began in Cleveland, Ohio nearly 90 years ago, when the first community foundation was established. For decades, the number of community foundations climbed slowly, but during the 1990s, growth was exponential, and today there are more than 700 across the United States, with scores more around the world.

Ten of America’s community foundations are in Missouri and approximately 73 are in Kansas. They serve the regions they exist in. For example, the Community Foundation of Northwest Missouri, Inc. serves 18 counties in Northwest Missouri.
