The Foundation maintains electronic copies of newsletters and annual reports that keep our constituencies briefed on community foundation news, our nonprofit community and local philanthropy.

Giving Matters is a quarterly newsletter written for our donors and nonprofit partners. Each issue features topical philanthropic news, information on grant deadlines and awards, new funds and nonprofit partners, featured donors and general updates from the CFGD office.

Annual Reports are published each October.
