The Montgomery County Community Foundation
The Montgomery County Community Foundation was established to create and build a permanent fund to provide for the present and future well-being of our community. To this end, the Foundation works to encourage philanthropy by offering local donors simplicity and flexibility in carrying out their charitable wishes while creating an enduring legacy. A board of private citizens, who represent the diverse interests of Montgomery County, governs the Foundation.
We are a publicly supported non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity, one of more than 700 community foundations in the United States.
Advantages of giving to the Foundation.
Establishing a permanent charitable fund through Montgomery County Community Foundation allows donors to create a legacy that will benefit the community forever. Donations to the community foundation afford donors maximum tax advantages and flexibility. The Foundation’s Board of Directors provides strong investment oversight services and the staff manage all administrative details of the endowment. The impact of donors’ philanthropic dollars is maximized by pooling them with other gifts. This can provide a relatively constant source of annual income and help maintain the donors' mission in perpetuity.
