Rochester Area Community Foundation

With assets of $310 million, the Rochester Area Community Foundation works to improve the quality of life in the greater Rochester region by evaluating and addressing community issues, promoting responsible philanthropy, and connecting donors to community needs.  Since its establishment in 1972, the Foundation has awarded more than $340 million in grants to community nonprofits.  The Foundation’s grantmaking is currently directed towards two goals:  1) creating an equitable community, which includes supporting community and economic development efforts focused on addressing poverty, and 2) strengthening the region’s vitality.  To change the culture of community problem-solving and decision making, the Foundation created ACT Rochester, a community indicators initiative which provides an objective assessment of the region's performance through over 100 indicators of community well-being.
