Giving Made Simple
Working with the CFHA makes your giving simple and effective.
We take your giving or grant-making objectives and help you to determine the appropriate investment strategy. There are a variety of fund structures offered by the CFHA to ensure your giving goals are met.
Make a Difference Now and Forever
CFHA offers a variety of fund structures to ensure your giving goals are met.
Along with taking care of your children, designating a portion of your estate for future good works fosters a strong community and establishes a lasting legacy for you and your family. You can endow a charitable fund with the CFHA that will bear your name (or any name you choose to honor) forever. Whether you set up your fund to support a specific cause or causes close to your heart, or give to the CFHA and allow us the flexibility to use it for the greatest community needs, grants will be awarded in your name for generations to come.
Investing In Our Community
By carl Pierce
“I always wanted to give something back to the community in which I had invested a significant portion of my life. I had found the community, but lacked the mechanism to see my goals fulfilled. That mechanism was a gift through the Community Foundation of the Hermann Area. When we started this foundation in 2005, we had just a few dollars and a lot of dreams. Since then CFHA has grown beyond our wildest dreams to 53 funds with more than $2.7 million. The breadth and depth of the funds supported by the foundation is a true measure of the heart of this community.”
A Simple, Effective Mission
by steve mueller
“Always remember that the purpose of a community foundation is to keep the wealth of a community securely within the community for the ultimate use and benefit of the community. That mission statement is so simple, yet so effective. As long as we are able to staff the board of directors with intelligent, caring people and maintain a supportive and functional relationship with the sponsoring foundation in Springfield, our Community Foundation of the Hermann Area will always enable us and our organizations to help Hermann accomplish some remarkable things.”
