The Blue River Community Foundation identifies, promotes, supports, and manages programs that will enhance the health, cultural, educational, social and civic long terms needs of Shelby County.
Our Vision is to encourage philanthropy and inspire action that improves all lives and builds stronger communities in Shelby County.
Three special features of community foundations are:
We make giving easy, flexible, and effective, accepting a wide variety of gifts and providing donors the greatest flexibility. You can contribute cash, stocks, property, and bequests. You may establish an Unrestricted, Field of Interest, Designated or Donor Advised Fund in your name or in the name of a loved one. Your gift will gain maximum tax advantage.
Our professional staff has an in-depth understanding of the issues, opportunities and resources that shape our community. We monitor all areas of community need – including human services, education, the environment, healthcare, the arts and economic development. We can help you learn more about local agencies and programs that make a difference in areas you care about most.
We invest in the long term and bring people and organizations together, convening diverse voices to address local issues and opportunities.
