The mission of Adams County Foundation is to provide equitable opportunities for all. Our vision is to strengthen our community by providing equitable opportunities to all Adams County residents, through our collaborations and support of local nonprofits.
The development of the Adams County Foundation (ACF) allowed the Board of County Commissioners to develop an efficient and streamlined way for nonprofits to access grant funding and develop strategic partnerships. The ACF board members are tasked to identify the current needs and trends in our community and ensure that funding is dispersed to local non-profits. Our Foundation continues its commune mission by engaging philanthropic partners, leveraging funding, fundraising, and investing in successful programming that yields more opportunities for the community in the future. This current strategic plan demonstrates how the current ACF board plans to continue its important work while also setting a course for the future and sustainability of the ACF.
