About this organization







The Community Foundation, founded in 1959, serves as a trusted advisor in growing philanthropy, as a high-impact grantmaker and as a catalyst and convener for transformational change for the Greater Birmingham region. We connect caring people and key resources to community needs and opportunities, using current and estate gifts held in the form of grantmaking funds. These funds may be unrestricted in their grantmaking, designated to benefit one or more agencies or advised by an individual, family or business. Individual funds range in size, starting at a minimum of $15,000, but the donors who established these funds shared a common desire to give and create a better community now and in the future.  Under careful management of the Board and Staff, the Community Foundation assures that these funds are always used as the donor intended. Grants from these funds address a wide spectrum of categories: arts, culture and humanities; education; environment; health; human services/strengthening families; supportive communities and, from advised and designated funds only, religion. The Community Foundation also operates in a corporate format (see 63-120931 for more information).
