|Dear Friends of Idyllwild,
If you are looking for a way to give back to Idyllwild, the Idyllwild Community Fund is the one local organization whose purpose is to make a difference in the lives of the greatest number of Hill residents.
Since an Idyllwild couple first gave a generous gift to our community in 1996, continued donations have enabled the Fund to grant more than $146,000 to local nonprofit groups. Each year, grants are carefully determined by a board of your peers, with a focus on health and safety, education and the arts. 2011 recipients include Animal Rescue Friends (ARF), Friends of the San Jacinto Mountain County Parks, Isis Theatre Company, the Idyllwild School smARTS Program, Idyllwild HELP Center, Mountain Disaster Preparedness, Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council and the Idyllwild Garden Club.
All it takes is one hand and one heart, and your tax-deductible donation, to continue this chain of giving that supports projects all over Idyllwild. And, since none of your original gift is ever touched—only the interest earned on the secure investment—yourgift, whether large or small, creates a lasting legacy that will keep on giving to the community you love for all the years to come.
The simplest way to make a donation is to write a check to The Community Foundation, earmarked for The Idyllwild Community Fund, and mail it to ICF at Idyllwild Community Fund, PO Box 761, Idyllwild, CA 92549. If you would like to include The Idyllwild Community Fund in your Will or Trust, you may contact Celia Cudiamat by phone at (951) 684-4194 X114, by mail c/o The Community Foundation, 3700 Sixth Street, Suite 200, Riverside CA, 92501, or by email at ccudiamat [at] thecommunityfoundation.net.
We thank you in anticipation of your gift and wish you health and happiness throughout the coming year.
With warmest regards,
The Idyllwild Community Fund
