A New Tool for the Community

Same values. New foundation. Our new building, the first ever in the Rochester Area Foundation's history of over 70 years, will give the community a tool to address the growing needs in our communities. From meeting room rentals to helping new nonprofits build their capacity through our Nonprofit Incubation Space, the Rochester Area Foundation hopes to purchase this building in the Spring of 2016.  We need YOUR help to do it, and our RAF Building Campaign has a matching gift opportunity that will DOUBLE your donation!  We are 60% of the way there and every dollar makes a difference.
