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.

The following local sponsors helped with the Mother’s Day Lobster Dinner Fundraiser for Sussex Area Community Foundation. Proceeds from this dinner are to support programs and services of the Foundation:
  • Scotiabank Sussex
  • Mrs. Dunster’s
  • Masonic Lodge Sussex
  • Mama George’s Restaurant
  • Norrad’s Redemption and Trucking
Please support these local businesses as helping to improve our community.
