Our community is a rich, vibrant place. We are working to make it even better! The Freshwater Coast Community Foundation is built upon the idea that there is plenty of vision, knowhow, and drive to make life better — right here. Our efforts are stimulating local entrepreneurs, educators, and artists. Browse our site to learn what we are doing and how you can participate to improve life here on the Freshwater Coast.


Our region is ripe for business development. Whether someone wants to launch an agribusiness
or establish a base for an e-commerce website, we are here to help.


The education systems of today produce the workforce and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. We are chartered to make investments to improve our schools and our educational processes.

The Arts

Cultural enrichments enhance the quality of life in our region. We may aim to enhance our collective bottom line, but investments in the arts will cultivate a vibrant imagination among our people.
