As with all community foundations, the Pomona Community Foundation is a public charity that raises funds and makes grants to support local issues and causes, with one central goal:

To continue improving the quality of life for its community’s residents

To accomplish this, the Pomona Community Foundation and the California Community Foundation have partnered in fundraising for Pomona.

What does “giving back” mean to you? 

There are many ways to enjoy the rewards of being a community philanthropist.  The Pomona Community Foundation can simplify the process and provide you with all the access and tools you require to give to local causes.

“Giving back” can be everything from helping a neighbor, to setting up a scholarship fund for kids with passion, to bequeathing your estate to a community need.  However you define it, a contribution to Pomona’s grant-making efforts through the Foundation will make a lasting and fulfilling difference.

What can be donated?

You may donate a variety of assets to establish or add to a Pomona Community Foundation fund:

  • Cash (or cash equivalents, including credit card donations)
  • Real estate
  • Transfer of a private foundation
  • Tangible personal property

As a donor, you may choose to support one of the Pomona Community Foundation’s existing funds, particularly if it holds special meaning for you.  At present, we invite you to explore our existing projects and funds to determine if one or more are right for you:
