The Carbon County Community Foundation was formed by a small group of caring, generous people from Carbon County in 2015 with the mission to improve the quality of life for all residents the region through charitable giving. The Foundation exists to be simultaneously a philanthropic leader, a community resource and a steward of charitable funds. CCCF seeks to understand current community needs and take action to help meet them. CCCF’s goal is to support donors with their charitable giving and help them invest strategically in the causes they care about, here or anywhere in the world. The Community Foundation helps meet community needs by giving grants today, but also helps build a more sustainable future by developing funds that will live on in perpetuity, providing support to the community for generations to come.
