Indian River Community Foundation is a vibrant nonprofit grantmaking foundation with a powerfully simple mission of building a better community through donor-driven philanthropy.
Indian River Community Foundation’s business is philanthropy. We are in business for three reasons:
- To help individuals and families to organize and carry out their charitable giving, primarily through donor advised funds.
- To expand and deploy financial capital to improve the community, primarily through donor advised grants and other donor-supported discretionary grantmaking.
- To inspire individuals and families to create and leave a charitable legacy, primarily through donor-supported permanent endowment funds.

Since the Foundation’s establishment in 2008, the Foundation’s community of donors has grown to hold more than 125 named funds with assets of approximately $30 million. Altogether, the Foundation’s donors have granted more than $30 million from these named funds to support charitable organizations locally and across the country.
