Who Will Benefit from Gifts
to the Foundation?
The Foundation's charter states that it is exclusively charitable and must benefit the residents of the Rome area. It fulfills this mission by making grants to eligible community charitable organizations. Some community organizations eligible for grants are Rome Art and Community Center, Jervis Public Library, Rome Senior Citizens Center, Rome Community Theater, Capitol Theatre, Welcome Hall, churches and similar organizations.
No one knows what charitable needs will exist in the future. It is the Foundation's task to perceive and meet those needs to the extent it has available resources.
Donations to the Rome Community Foundation constitute an investment in the future of the Rome area.
