Mission / Priorities

Our goal at Madison County Community Foundation is one we share with the entire community: improving the quality of life in Madison County.  Specifically, our mission states that the Foundation exists "to enhance the quality of life of the citizens of Madison County by attracting charitable gifts, making philanthropic grants, providing financial stewardship and community leadership."

The Board of Directors of the Madison County Community Foundation have established the Foundation's priorities as lead by the mission:

  • Attracting charitable gifts: chiefly in the form of endowments
  • Making philanthropic grants: in the areas of arts and culture, education, health and human services, economic development, and civic affairs
  • Providing responsible financial stewardship: as evidenced by adherence to the national standards established by the Council on Foundations
  • Providing community leadership: serving as convener and catalyst; identifying needs and opportunities and shaping effective responses to them
