Who We Are

By the Community, For the Community


CoMoGives Was a Success!

CoMoGives 2013 was  an easy and fun way to support participating local nonprofit organizations. All a donor needed do was go to, choose a charity, choose a donation amount, and then return to watch–each donation helped the chosen organization qualify for challenge grants from the Community Foundation. Over $60,000 was donated through CoMoGives in December 2013, and we’re very grateful for everyone’s support and participation. Checks will be drawn for each of the 30 participating organizations in early 2013.
