Our goal at Madison County Community Foundation is to assist area residents in making philanthropic giving as effective as possible. In our first annual report, Robert Nicholson, President of the Board of Directors, wrote, “Our mode of operation is important to understand. We do not typically do fund-raising; rather we seek to assist donors in their charitable intent. Our question always is, “”How may we help you in what you want to do?”
Each of our supporters, donors, grant recipients, scholarship winners, Board members, and community volunteers has an individual response to this question. It is our duty to assist these people with their charitable intent as it serves the Foundation's mission to improve the quality of life of the citizens of Madison County.
Donors can feel assured that our compliance with national standards for Foundations will ensure their gifts are put to the best use. Organizations which receive Foundation funding can feel gratified that the work they are doing has been carefully screened and accounted for.
We welcome your questions and interest in the work of the Madison County Community Foundation. We would love to have a conversation about how we might help you in what you want to do, today and far into the future.
A few years ago, Charles Dickmann made an offer that his fellow Rotarians couldn’t refuse. He pledged to match, dollar for dollar, gifts of $1,000 to create the Anderson Rotary Club Endowment within the Madison County Community Foundation.
