ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

The Coleman County Foundation was established in 1999 as a vehicle for philanthropy in Coleman County.

The foundation's fund is managed by the Community Foundation of Abilene, and the earnings from these assets are used to make grants to nonprofits serving various needs in Coleman County – educational, civic, arts, resources for people in need, and any cause that improves the quality of life of the residents of Coleman County.
