Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo

Charles Balbach

"There's no other organization that is bringing change to this community quite like the Community Foundation."


For Charles Balbach, giving back is a way of life. As a local businessman he feels directly connected to the community that helped him become successful and now that he’s retired, he spends his time expressing his thanks through a range of charitable endeavors. Recognizing the community’s needs will change over time, Charles has chosen to leave a gift in his Will to the Community Foundation to be used at the Foundation’s discretion to address the most pressing needs of the day in the future. “With its history of careful stewardship and knowledge of the community, I trust that the Community Foundation will make good choices as to how my fund should be used after my lifetime.”
