It is the Community Foundation's role to tend to the spirit of Door County. Gratitude is a natural human response to beauty. Out of gratitude we give back. When you give back through the Community Foundation, you also are looking forward. The Community Foundation holds Door County's future in strong hands. We protect its future with caring and foresight. By its very structure, the Community Foundation makes sure that each individual gift continues to give in a vital way, year after year into the future. Grants go to human needs, the arts, the environment, education and other charitable causes. There is something in each of us that wants to be immortal. People give to capital fund drives for new buildings because they feel these gifts will endure beyond them. But even buildings and memorials have a life span that is limited. The Community Foundation's life is unlimited. The grants it makes are alive, touching and sustaining the people, organizations, land and water of Door County.
