Leading the Way to a Better WNY

Many clients establish funds to address the changing needs of our community over time. The Community Foundation uses these funds to tackle those critical issues where change is needed most to improve the lives of many. Others donate annually to allow the Community Foundation flexibility in addressing our community's most pressing needs, while simultaneously enhancing our ability to capitalize on unique opportunities.
