Your Voice - Our Vision

Four County Community Foundation recently surveyed residents about emergent needs in our service area.
Four prevalent needs were identified and the foundation will give priority to these areas as we select grant projects to award in the next five years.


Beyond the Bell

An investment can have a huge impact on our local youth! Students can participate in after-school clubs or sports.

Your Story Matters

These funds will help support projects in the areas of suicide prevention, depression, drug abuse prevention, bullying prevention, etc.

Stronger Together

Funded projects will support small business development, mentoring programs, and workshops. Let’s support our emerging small businesses.

Let’s Go Places

Support projects that will provide mobility to our most at risk populations (senior citizens, the disabled, low income families.)
