Loyal individual donors and corporate partners’ continued generosity allows CCF to fund viable projects that benefit our county residents, students and seniors. Since it’s inception in 2000, CCF has awarded more than $920,000 in competitive grants, scholarships and assistance. The Foundation administers dozens of charitable funds for scholarships and other worthy causes.
