About the Fremont Area Community Foundation
The mission of the Fremont Area Community Foundation is to improve the quality of life in the Fremont area by connecting donor interests with community needs and serving as a leader and catalyst in the development of solutions. Since 1980, generous donors in the Fremont area have invested their charitable dollars to be transformed, through careful stewardship and deep community knowledge, into positive local impact. Over $15 million in grants has been given in the Fremont area through the Foundation.
The Fremont Area Community Foundation focuses its grant dollars in five interest areas including arts and culture, civic improvements, education, health and recreation and social services. Field of Interest Funds are also available in these areas to give donors the option to focus their charitable giving in a specific interest area.
As nonprofit organizations, local governments and businesses strive to tackle issues of concern, the Fremont Area Community Foundation collaborates with other organizations in the community to work toward a common goal. Through these collaborations, community partners leverage collective knowledge, creativity and resources for a greater impact than any of us can make alone.
