Stanislaus Community Foundation stands at a unique intersection between resources and community need. Our focus is to deepen the connection between those resources and needs so that our collective philanthropy is both strategic and smart. We offer a simple, personal approach that provides donors with the greatest opportunity to make a lasting impact in our community.

What Is A Community Foundation?

A community foundation is a place-based public charity created by and for a specific region of people. We house more than 135 unique charitable funds under our umbrella; set up by individuals, families, corporations, public and nonprofit agencies. Anyone with a charitable goal can achieve it, easily and efficiently, by utilizing the services of a community foundation. Since 2002, Stanislaus Community Foundation has provided over $15 million in grants and scholarships within our region.
