About Us

OUR MISSION

 

The mission of the Fayette Community Foundation is to build stronger, safer, and more vibrant communities by providing a bridge that connects caring philanthropists to those in need.

OUR HISTORY

Fayette Community Foundation was founded in 2001 with the goal of becoming this area’s premier resource for philanthropists, non-profit organizations, and community leaders. FCF serves the needs of the remarkable people whose financial gifts make a lasting difference in this community.

Board of Directors

The Directors of the Foundation are local men and women who are knowledgeable about the unique needs of Fayette County and the surrounding areas.  They seek to identify problems and needs not otherwise being adequately addressed and make these known to potential donors. They serve the donors, the charitable organizations, and the community as a whole in their capacity as Director.
