Why should I contribute? 
Contributing to a local foundation is a way to assist a community in its endeavor to continue to provide the quality of life that the community has come to expect. The gifts to the foundation keep on giving for generations to come. 

The foundation is a tax free way to continue to give back to the community or organization that you wish to support. This foundation keeps the money in use in the community and will continue to grow and expand into the future. 

So if you are looking at supporting a philanthropic cause, the Cheney Community Foundation will provide you the assistance to make that happen.
