About Us

Cumberland Community Foundation was established in 1980 with a gift of $576,840 from Dr. Lucile West Hutaff.  She had a vision of our community coming to together to make life better.  Today we are one of the most successful community foundations in the country and are supported by thousands of people from all walks of life and varied charitable interests.

Cumberland Community Foundation provides essential funding to programs that enhance quality of life in every corner of Cumberland County.  We have an in-depth understanding of the community’s challenges and needs, and we know the groups and individuals addressing them. We are dedicated to improving life in this community for future generations.

We are here to do good work, forever.
