2023 - A Record Breaking Year of Generosity

The Community Foundation of Macon County has flourished through the generosity of amazing individuals, families, organizations, and businesses who have shared their time, expertise, and financial resources in support of our mission throughout the past 23 years.

By working together, the CFMC has earned a reputation for its flexibility, dedication, and trustworthiness. We are known for providing knowledgeable, innovative, and collaborative solutions for the benefit of fundholders and our community.

We serve and champion our community by:

• Investing and managing charitable funds created by local individuals, families, organizations and businesses;

• Helping donors bring their philanthropic vision to life;

• Connecting our community with learning opportunities and ways to create positive change;

• Strengthening nonprofits through charitable grants, training and online resources;

In 2023, we marked a major milestone as we surpassed $10 Million in gifts in one year to the CFMC and have awarded $48.5 Million in grants since our inception – a testament to the generosity of Macon County donors.

The spirit of philanthropy is about people helping people for the greater good of all, and that spirit is alive and well across our community. We are a community of givers, and by working together, we will continue to find ways to build and strengthen this special place we all call home.
