How we help
Our local charities require consistent fundraising efforts to support the excellent programs and services they provide to the community; dinners, auctions, galas etc. All this requires a great deal of time and hard work by staff and volunteers, taking valuable resources away from the core purpose of the organization.
We want to return precious time and resources to local charities, giving them the freedome to focus on their missions.
We do this by acting like the savings account for the community, creating long-term stable sources of funding to support the full range of community life.
