GET. GROW. GIVE.
Get gifts. Grow funds. Give back. It’s what we do here at Cumberland Community Foundation. We receive gifts from people from all walks of life and all abilities to give. We invest the gifts we receive so they grow. We give back by making community investments in programs that help our community thrive.
Giving to Cumberland Community Foundation does not require great wealth and is not complicated. Whether you choose to give a gift now or later through your estate plan, you have options.
Most of the funds at Cumberland Community Foundation are permanent endowments, which means they will benefit our community forever. We invest your gifts so they grow and maximize the resources available to address community needs within the charitable purpose you design. For endowed funds, our investment goals are to preserve the original value of gifts in terms of inflation, and grow our assets as much as market conditions allow so we can:
- Make community investments in programs that address community needs now.
- Ensure there will be resources available to address community needs in the future.
- Support your fund’s charitable purpose, forever.
Cumberland Community Foundation gives back by making strategic community investments in good programs that help Cumberland County area people, businesses and organizations thrive. We have six main community investment priorities:
- Civic Engagement
- Economic Development
- Environmental Education and Preservation
- Health and Human Services
