What is a Community Foundation

A community foundation is a tax-exempt public charity created by and for the people in a local area. It enables people with philanthropic interests to easily and effectively support the issues they care about - immediately, or through their will. Donors can establish a charitable fund at the Foundation by contributing a variety of assets and may also recommend grants - in their name, if they choose - to nonprofit groups they want to support.

We recognize that one of the most appealing advantages for donors who give through the Sumter Sunshine Community Foundation is flexibility. To this end, we offer our donors a variety of tax-effective ways to make gifts and achieve their charitable goals.
