Inspired For Change

We are inspired to initiate change so our community can prosper.

The Centralia Community Foundation provides people who have philanthropic passion with data-driven solutions to create lasting change. As the community’s foundation, we are an independent and trusted steward of our donor’s dollars and we partner with philanthropy to make Centralia a stronger, more vibrant community for all.

There are great benefits that flow from investing in education. We believe that quality education and enhanced career training programs will provide more opportunities for our future and create a healthy community where families and businesses can thrive.

For continued success, we need ongoing financial support. Over the past three years, we have been fortunate to have many businesses and individuals provide us their generous support.

Here are just a few reasons that these people have chosen to give to the Centralia Community Foundation:

“As the local community bank, it was an easy decision for the Board of Directors at Security State Bank to get behind the efforts of the Centralia Community Foundation. The Foundation’s top priority of improving the quality of education for our students will ultimately strengthen the future of our community. We encourage other businesses and individuals to join us in supporting the foundation by getting involved and/or providing financial support.”

Security State Bank

“We have lived here for over 50 years and we have always appreciated this generous and supportive community. The fact that Centralia Community Foundation is focused on providing support to enhance education in Centralia is invaluable. It is essential to have good career programs and quality education to lead us forward. We believe the Foundation will help us grow and become a better community.”

“Tin Men Supply supports the Centralia Community Foundation because we recognize education is the cornerstone to a successful community. The foundation mobilizes resources to give tools and opportunities to all youth in our community for better education and career training opportunities. We appreciate and trust that our donations are in the hands of good stewards and are fostering growth for the people and future of Centralia.”

“We believe it is so important to help the Centralia Community Foundation with the great things they can do for our community. They have created real partnerships with the Centralia School District, Centralia College, the local business leadership, philanthropists, and our community. We are all going to benefit from education enhancements, and we want to get involved in supporting the leadership, vision, and dedication of this organization. If we all get involved we can make great things happen in Centralia.”

We will accomplish our goals for a better future by working together.
We appreciate those in our community who share and support our vision by contributing to the Foundation. If you would like to see enhancements for all of us, then please donate to the Centralia Community Foundation.

Our Board of Directors wishes your family a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
