Although there was much of 2020 we all want to forget, there were also positives that came out of last year. One of those positives for the Putnam County Community Foundation was the launch of our newly redesigned website www.pcfoundation.org.

After months of hard work and dedication, we unveiled a robust website that is easy to navigate and full of community resources.

We have resources for our local nonprofits, such as GrantStation, a program utilized to identify grant funding opportunities. Additionally, nonprofits can find information regarding our Community Grants program and event details for our Putnam-Montgomery Nonprofit Learning Series workshops. These workshops provide professional development for our nonprofit leaders, volunteers and employees in an environment where they can network with other nonprofits serving Putnam and Montgomery County.

Our community members can access various resources, such as a comprehensive list of local nonprofits and food pantries serving our communities. Community members can also find information about our events and programs, such as CommunityReads, a book club designed for individuals to explore new ideas and concepts while building relationships with like-minded individuals.

Donors can now easily find ways to fund their passions on our website. Whether seeking ways to create a family legacy through a named fund or donating to an established philanthropic fund, we offer a wide range of giving options, including a streamlined online giving platform.

Donors can see a full list of funds housed at the Community Foundation and find ones that align with their passions. Additionally, they can also see a list of past grant recipients funded through our Community Grants program, made possible thanks to our generous donors.

One of my favorite quotes is this by Melinda Gates: “Philanthropy is not about the money. It’s about using whatever resources you have at your fingertips and applying them to improving the world.”

We hope that our new website gives our community members the resources needed to positively impact our communities.

I encourage you to visit our website and take a look around. We are always open to feedback and recommendations of other resources/information you would like to see on the website as we continue to seek new ways to serve Putnam County.
