We hope you will take a moment to watch this short video and hear first-hand from community members who have been Focus Area Volunteers for a number of years now and are intimately involved with the Community Investment process.
While some of our donors choose to designate their gifts to a specific nonprofit, many choose to donate to the Community Investment Fund. They do this because they understand the powerful process that is used to invest these funds in the community.
Every spring up to a hundred or so volunteers actively review applications, discuss community needs and make collective investment decisions in order to make the best use of these dollars within the areas of Education, Income and Health. It's an incredible example of community spirit and cooperation and we are grateful to each of our volunteers who give so much of their time.
