About the Foundation

Gather. Grant. Grow.Since 1968, the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region has provided an effective means for people who care about this community to be part of shaping its future. The Community Foundation offers donors a complete toolkit for charitable giving, expert assistance in learning more about the causes they care about, and the opportunity to join others with similar interests to learn and give together.

The Community Foundation distributed $4.2 million in 2016 to hundreds of not-for-profit organizations in the Capital Region and beyond. With assets of $70 million, the Foundation is comprised of more than 420 charitable funds created by a diverse group of individuals, families and corporations. In addition, several local independent foundations contract with the Community Foundation for grantmaking assistance.

Through flexible donor services, strategic grant making and community leadership, the Community Foundation helps people support the causes they care about, now and for generations to come. For more information, please visit the Foundation online at www.cfgcr.org or call (518) 446-9638.
