ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

The Coleman County Foundation (CCF) was established in 1999 as a vehicle for philanthropy in Coleman County.

The foundation's fund is managed by the Community Foundation of Abilene, and the earnings from these assets are used to make grants to nonprofits serving various needs to improve the quality of life for residents in Coleman County. Since inception, the Coleman County Foundation has awarded more than $1.2 million to charitable community organizations for the betterment of the communities located in Coleman county.

In 2005, Coleman County Foundation initiated the Friends of Coleman County Foundation to support the community in a unique way. Membership dues are pooled into the endowment and grants are made each spring to organizations across Coleman County. To date, the Friends have awarded more than $348,000 in grant funds to community organizations.
