What is the Community Foundation?
Founded in 1972, the Rochester Area Community Foundation is one of more than 850 community Foundations in the country. A permanent community endowment, your community foundation has been built up over the years by gifts and bequests from individuals, families and organizations committed to addressing the changing needs of our region.
