The Community Foundation of Central Missouri was organized as a charity in June 2010 and publicly announced in November of that same year. CFCM is a direct result of a recommendation from the City of Columbia’s visioning process in 2008 that called for an independent and nonprofit community foundation to be created.
The Community Foundation of Central Missouri works to expand philanthropy, support nonprofits, and engage in key community issues in Columbia and the rest of Central Missouri. By offering donors several unique ways to invest in the community through specific organizations or general causes, CFCM donors have a broad impact on the lives of thousands of people.
Our network of affiliate relationships continues to grow and is forming a foundation that works together with people to improve lives throughout our region.
