Our History & Our Mission

Our History
We are young. Started in January of 2007 by leaders who saw a need to elevate the conversation of philanthropy in our region, we are already having a dramatic impact. In our short history, our assets have grown to 15.6 million and we have granted over $5.6 million to nonprofit organizations. From land-use planning encouraging thoughtful management of our region’s growth to buying a mattress for an elderly Katrina victim still sleeping on a floor, our donors’ dollars are making lives better across the Northshore.

Our Mission
The Northshore Community Foundation unites human and financial resources to enhance the quality of life in the Northshore region. To achieve our mission we:

Serve donors to build the assets that drive initiatives and solutions;
Engage community leaders to develop appropriate responses to emerging opportunities and challenges; and
Evaluate our work and share the results with our stakeholders.
