The Columbia Basin Foundation is pleased to be celebrating its twentieth year of service to our great communities. In twenty years, the foundation has grown to more than $8.3 million in assets belonging to 98 different funds. 76 of the funds currently operating are endowments, while 22 are special project/fiscal sponsorship non-endowed funds. All of these funds were created by generous donors and are managed by the Columbia Basin Foundation.
The Columbia Basin Foundation is a community foundation, which means that we are a tax-exempt public charity that enables people to establish charitable funds. We make grants to community groups from funds established by individuals, families, businesses and others who wish to support the work of non-profit groups, schools and other groups that address community needs.
