Cottonwood Area Community Foundation
The Cottonwood Area Community Foundation was established in 2019. 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 Cottonwood area.
Local Advisory Board
The Cottonwood Area Community Foundation sets grant-making priorities through regular review of community needs and opportunities. Grants are made to qualified non-profit organizations that have an interest in building and strengthening the community and surrounding area. Since 2021, the Cottonwood Area Community Foundation has granted nearly $195,000 to support school programs and extracurriculars, the Cottonwood Splash Pad project, the local food pantry, fire department and more.
