Benson Area Community Foundation
The Benson Area Community Foundation aims to enrich the quality of life for community members and provide a legacy by connecting charitable donors to their visions for Benson and the surrounding area. Organized under the umbrella of Southwest Initiative Foundation, the community foundation is a vehicle for making charitable contributions for the benefit of the community through a permanent endowment fund that enables people to give back and fulfill the dreams for tomorrow. A local advisory board provides oversight and directs how funds will be used for the exclusive benefit of the Benson area.
