Where your investment goes
Community Investment Fund
Local agencies request funding from our Community Investment Fund based on community needs. Local people volunteer their time to vet and review all of the nonprofits we fund in the areas of quality programming, governance, finance, and administration to ensure donor funds are distributed effectively and objectively.
We believe that everyone has the right to choose who their donations help, which is why we also honor all donor designations intended for health and human service agencies -- whether or not they are supported by our own allocation process. This designation process makes it easy to utilize our payroll deduction system while supporting the organizations that are closest to your heart.
If a donor does not designate their gift to a specific organization, their entire donation goes into our Community Investment Fund and is distributed to support the programs and services of more than 50 nonprofit agencies.
Extend your reach.
More than 1,500 people choose to extend their reach into our community through Leadership Circle and Tocqueville Society. Their generosity is a powerful tool that allows us to make significant investments in more than 50 local organizations that improve lives and positively influence our community.
