Fund Spotlight : The 20/20 Circle
The Community Foundation is an umbrella for many different charitable funds. Some funds, like the Fund for Carbon County, are advised at the discretion of the Board of Directors. The 20/20 Circle is a perpetual fund that is designed to serve our community’s ever changing needs. Donors pledge at least $1000 to become a member of the Circle and meet annually to vote to award grants to the most deserving community projects and organizations. Learn more.
Fund Spotlight : The Carbon County Creative Arts Fund
Founded and supported by donors who would like to encourage the arts in our region, the Creative Arts Fund is CCCF’s first field of interest fund. The fund will have a committee of stakeholders to oversee grant distributions in the community to qualified artists and organizations. This fund will grow through donor support and arts event fundraisers which themselves will be opportunities to engage with and support the arts. Learn more about how you can help.
Become A Founder
Founders pledge $25,000 to the Community Foundation’s “Fund for Carbon County,” may opt to serve on the Board of Directors, and will forever be recognized for their role in helping to launch this important community resource. Join this special group of local philanthropists and build a strong future for our region today.

A donation to the Carbon County Community Foundation is an investment in our community’s future.
Organizing donors and philanthropy is only half of a what a community foundation does. Our communities are improved when we award grants to the local non-profits who carry out the work of community building.
