Agency Partners

Charitable organizations must maintain and build assets for both day-to-day operations and sustainability. The Community Foundation of the Ozarks provides agencies with the vehicle to grow their capacity to serve people through the wise stewardship of their funds and opportunities for collaboration with like-minded organizations.

CFO addresses the needs of nonprofits through the Agency Partners Program. Participating agencies have the peace of mind knowing their charitable resources are being managed in a sound and responsible manner by a dedicated, experienced Investment Advisory Board as well as a staff and Board of Directors committed to working for the benefit of our communities.
