About Us

Freeport Community Foundation

Charitable Status

The Freeport Community Foundation is an independent, nonprofit organization with IRS 501(c)(3) status. Gifts made to the Foundation generally qualify for the maximum allowable deductions for income and estate tax purposes. We encourage the full participation of your financial planner, attorney, accountant and/or insurance representative to understand your goals and the many options available through the Foundation.

Our History

In 1975, a group of forward-thinking citizens established the Freeport Community Trust. Their intent was to ensure a permanent source of funds for local charitable organizations.

In 1998, the Board of Directors changed the name to the Freeport Community Foundation. In 2002, the Board of Directors updated the structure of the organization from a simple trust to a not-for-profit corporation.

Our Community

We firmly believe that the Foundation belongs to the community. It is like a “community savings account” for people to give back to the community in which they lived, worked and raised their families. It serves its donors, nonprofit organizations and institutions and the community as a whole.
