The Community Endowment Fund
Founded in 1980 by Dr. Lucile Hutaff, you can make an impact and help us make life better for all in Cumberland County by giving to our Community Endowment Fund. We use this fund to address Cumberland County’s most significant needs. Your gifts to the Community Endowment Fund become part of a permanent endowment, which means they will help our community forever.
This general fund provides our board of directors with the flexibility to address Cumberland County’s most significant social, cultural, educational and environmental needs; respond quickly to emergencies; and facilitate innovative responses to community challenges.
