For good.

When people do good, they feel good. CCF makes it easy. We serve as a leader, a catalyst, a trusted resource to help initiate and grow your philanthropic ideas.

For community.

You know your community like no one else. Donate to a fund to help meet the needs that mean the most to you in your home town.  Or, give back to your community by creating a “Community Good” fund to help provide assistance for your community’s greatest needs.


Let the CCF enhance your efforts to help ensure a strong and vibrant future for your community. Funds endowed with the CCF will continue to bring good to your community into perpetuity, forever.
