Giving & Receiving
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the goal of the Colonial Beach Community Foundation is to raise and disburse funds for actions that impact our residents and visitors, promote diversity, encourage inclusion, continue education, and respect our natural habitat.
Giving to the Colonial Beach Community Foundation
We place the financial gifts we receive from individuals, businesses, and organizations into endowment funds and invest them to generate earnings. We coordinate with fund advisers to distribute grants to a variety of community-oriented programs and nonprofit organizations in the Colonial Beach area.
You can donate to the Foundation in many ways. Of course, you can write and mail a check (P.O. Box 375), or select Donate on any of our web pages.
You can, however, give in other ways. Select Giving Options below to learn how.
You also can give to the Foundation by volunteering. In addition to staff needed to run events, we need knowledgeable, skilled, and experienced people in the areas of program development, grant writing, and legacy giving who can help us accomplish our mission. If you can lend your time and talent in those areas, please contact us. Also, if you have experience related to any of our Strategic Objectives, we want to hear from you.
