"Working with the Community for the Community."
Ceres Community Foundation
Some of our recent projects include the Ceres River Bluff Regional Park, Community Center Beautification, the Memorial Tree Grove, National Night Out and much more.
The citizens who formed the Foundation wanted a way for donors to contribute to their community and to qualify for federal and state tax deductions for their contributions.
A tax deduction is a consideration for many individuals, businesses and corporations in giving funds to projects.
The Foundation encourages citizens, businesses, corporations, trusts and other non-profit organizations to make donations for the community projects.
A donation can be designed for a specific purpose as long as it meets the Foundation's objectives and is approved by the Board of Directors.
It is a non-profit public benefit corporation 501 c(6), formed by a group of Ceres citizens to improve the quality of life for Ceres area residents.
The foundation is administered by a seven (7) member Board of Directors, six of whom are nominated and elected at large. Board members serve without compensation for a two (2) year term.
Our purpose is to solicit and develop community support for cultural, historical and artistic projects, as well as for parks and recreational facilities in the community.
