Chair Donahue’s Welcome

Welcome to the Stanton Community Foundation. If you are visiting this website for the first time, we hope that it will provide a greater understanding of our Community Foundation, our mission, the people we touch, and the community that we serve. 

The Community Foundation differs from most other public charities because it is not a single-focus charity. It is, instead, a catalyst for community change. The Foundation enhances the quality of life in our community through endowments in a number of areas, including: Culture, Education, Environment, Human Concerns, and Youth. In particular, today’s youth need to be the focus and we need to continue to fill in the gaps where services are no longer offered.  The Foundation is directed by a Board of Trustees and a Membership comprised of local citizens. Their knowledge of our community allows the Foundation to form the vital partnerships with other non-profit agencies required to serve current and emerging local needs and make the Stanton area even greater! 

Theodore Roosevelt said, "What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for our community lives long after we are gone." That sums up what the Stanton Community Foundation is all about. If you have a charitable goal or you feel that something could be added to our community, please let us help you. Let's work together to build a better community for our children and their children!  For good. Forever.

Brian Donahue
Chairman of the Board of Directors
