About the Foundation

What Do We Do?

Community foundations are grant making charities dedicated to improving the lives of people in a defined local geographic area.  They bring together the financial resources of individuals, families, and businesses to support nonprofits in their communities.  

At Three Rivers Community Foundation, our primary purposes are:

To stimulate the creation of  endowed funds to support nonprofits in our community now, and in the future;

To address community needs and opportunites through grant making and organizational leadership.


Three Rivers Community Foundation was very pleased to have received a Social Determinants of Health Grant from the Greater Columbia Accountable Community of Health.  

The application process has been completed and six local nonprofits received a total of $391,000 to address those determinants that are most impactful to people's health.  Those nonprofits are:

Catholic Charities, Communities in Schools, Community Action Connections, Grace Clinic, The Chaplaincy, and Tri-Cities Residential Services.
