HISTORY

The Sherman County Community Foundation was incorporated in 2002 as a tax exempt public charity. Initially, the vision of individuals pursing this goal dreamed of an organization with board representation of every local group of stakeholders with a large enough asset base to support all non-profit organizations and human services in Sherman County.

While this was an admirable aim, the board of directors looked to other communities for guidance and inspiration. Seeing the community foundation as an excellent model, the board was reorganized and reenergized to create a vehicle for philanthropy and to benefit local interests. The result is a nine-member board that meets monthly to conduct business.
