Community Foundation for Perry Family of Funds

The Community Foundation for Perry County is partnering with GeoPartners and Perry County organizations to map broadband access, speeds, and cost in Perry County to better inform future investments in this important resource in the county.


The Community Foundation for Perry County (CFPC) was established in 2011 by a small group of individuals from within the county and others that grew up and still have family and friends in the county. The Foundation was created to develop a sustainable, non-partisan way for individuals to build charitable, tax-exempt funds to be used solely to improve Perry County.

In celebration of Perry County’s 200th birthday, CFPC launched Endow 200, a campaign to expand impact by growing permanent dollars through 200 gifts of $5,000. By growing the CFPC’s endowment to about $1 million, Endow 200 will allow CFPC to create a brighter future for Perry County by generating approximately $50,000 in grants for the community annually – more than ten times what the CFPC is currently able to give.
