The Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation promotes private giving for the public good.

The Community Foundation is a permanent community endowment, built by gifts from thousands of individuals and organizations.

Guided by a 13-member Board of volunteer civic leaders, the Community Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations and to individuals for scholarships and provides leadership on important community initiatives in our area. Since our inception in 1983, we have distributed more than $35 million and currently manage over 300 different funds, each with its own charitable purpose.

In 2010, the Community Foundation approved grants, scholarships, and affiliated scholarships of nearly $2 million to area residents and nonprofit organizations.

The Community Foundation offers donors the opportunity to benefit our community for generations to come, great flexibility, and the most favorable tax benefits allowed under the law.
