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.

A New Vision for Charitable Giving in Carbon County

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.

Donate to the Carbon County Creative Arts Fund!

Support the arts in our region, forever.
