How does a community foundation work?

A community foundation works by welcoming donations in a multitude of ways from individuals or businesses in the local area and then provides funding and support to other charitable organisations or individuals in need of financial support for a variety of causes.

Essentially, a foundation is a great way for high net-worth individuals, businesses and members of the local community to make a charitable donation and be confident that the community foundation will use its knowledge of local needs and priorities to fund the causes that will have the greatest impact on the local community.
