The Community Foundation Difference

Grants are made possible through the investments of many community builders – our donors. Most gifts made to the community foundation are endowed; meaning the original gift is never spent. It’s the income earned on each gift that is used to make grants to the community. By pooling the gifts of many, the funds grow and thrive. An endowed fund allows us to make a gift to the community each year, forever.

Since 1998, Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation has granted over $3.3 million dollars to the community. Supporting the both vital and creative programs and ideas that have brought you to this page. That’s the difference and the power of Community Foundations. A lasting gift to the Community. Forever.
