The CCF Mission
Our mission is to serve the Chisholm and Balkan communities by stewarding funds for innovative and creative projects, which are responsive to community and economic development in the areas of social service, education, arts and culture, conservation, and historic and environmental preservation.
How the Chisholm Community Foundation Works
The Chisholm Community Foundation ensures that all donations go directly into community projects. All operating expenses of the CCF come from corporate partnerships and fundraisers. The CCF only spends the interest and dividend income earned on its trust. That Interest can be invested back into the community for a variety of projects that will make Chisholm a better place to live.
The foundation also may be able to leverage other money into the community for worthwhile projects. A board of local residents will choose the projects that can benefit the community the most. Learn more about how the CCF works here.
