Fairhope/Point Clear Community Foundation
Through the Community Foundation of South Alabama’s affiliate program, local leaders from Fairhope and Point Clear established the Fairhope/Point Clear Community Foundation.
Furthering the Spirit of Utopia
Since that time, Fairhope has flourished to become a vibrant community of over 16,000 residents, spawning neighborhoods which extend to Point Clear and beyond.
Imbued with the same spirit of working together for the common good, a small group of local leaders came together in January 2018 to form the Fairhope/Point Clear Community Foundation as an affiliate of The Community Foundation of South Alabama.
Serving as an advisory committee, the group established an endowed fund as a vehicle to receive donations and bequests to benefit the community and can make recommendations about how the charitable dollars are distributed to local nonprofits, churches, schools or government entities.
“We are very excited to make a lasting impact in the Fairhope and Point Clear areas through the Community Foundation and all the resources it has to offer,” FHPC Community Foundation chair Ashley Bonner said. “We look forward to serving the many other charitable organizations in our community in order to enhance the philanthropic efforts already underway. It’s such a unique way to promote the culture of giving that already exists here and be a source of new growth and progress as well.”
The establishment of this affiliate community foundation is another example of the commitment of Fairhope to helping the people around them. Without missing a beat, the Fairhope / Point Clear Community Foundation is working together to raise more funding to circulate back into the community.
