Make the most of your generosity

The Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo is a 501(c)(3) public charity holding more than 800 different charitable funds, large and small, established by individuals, families, nonprofit organizations and businesses to benefit Western New York.

Year after year, the partners who make up the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo come together to make a difference. With your help, we will continue to empower Generosity for Generations, looking to the future but never forgetting the forward-thinking individuals who have brought us to this very moment. Our approach to giving continues to grow and evolve over time.

Ultimately, our goal is to assist clients in making the most of their generosity.
