Our roles are:

  • Build community endowment.
  • Address needs through grant making.
  • Provide leadership on key community issues.
The Sussex Area Community Foundation was incorporated in 2004 by a dedicated group of community leaders. When you make a gift to the Sussex Area Community Foundation, you join people from all walks of life who have one thing in common, the desire to make a difference to the Sussex Area, forever. Your gift will continue to give, year after year, because it is part of a permanent endowment that is professionally managed by a team of community leaders and investment advisors.  Earnings from the endowment are used to give grants and scholarships to our community.
