About UsFreeport Community Foundation
The Freeport Community Foundation is an independent, nonprofit organization with IRS 501(c)(3) status. Gifts made to the Foundation generally qualify for the maximum allowable deductions for income and estate tax purposes. We encourage the full participation of your financial planner, attorney, accountant and/or insurance representative to understand your goals and the many options available through the Foundation.
In 1975, a group of forward-thinking citizens established the Freeport Community Trust. Their intent was to ensure a permanent source of funds for local charitable organizations.
In 1998, the Board of Directors changed the name to the Freeport Community Foundation. In 2002, the Board of Directors updated the structure of the organization from a simple trust to a not-for-profit corporation.
The Freeport Community Foundation is a “community investment account” for people to give back to the community in which they live, work and raise their families. It serves its donors, nonprofit organizations and institutions and our communities as a whole.
