The Central Valley Community Foundation works to improve lives in the Valley by cultivating smart philanthropy, leading and investing in solutions that build stronger communities. We provide unique opportunities for individual donors, families, businesses, and other foundations to invest in programs that address a wide spectrum of economic, social, educational, cultural and environmental needs.


At Fresno Metro Ministries we believe the Central Valley Community Foundation is not only an essential philanthropic financial investor for achieving community benefit in our region, but is a key community partnering institution for finding and implementing innovative ways to solve some of our most intractable socio-economic and health problems here in the Valley.
