By the Community, For the Community


CoMoGives Returns December 2014!

CoMoGives 2013 was  such a success that the Community Foundation will offer it again this coming December. CoMoGives is an easy and fun end-of-year campaign to support participating local nonprofit organizations. All a donor needs do is go to the CoMoGives website during 12/1-31, choose a charity, choose a donation amount, and then return to watch–and each donation helps the chosen organization qualify for $6,000 in challenge grants from the Community Foundation. Over $62,000 was donated through CoMoGives in December 2013, and we’re very grateful for everyone’s support and participation.
