Angel Fire Community Foundation

Join Us To Make A Difference

As the traditional season of giving approaches, with Thanksgiving and tax-deductible donation opportunities, many Angel Fire / Moreno Valley residents and property owners are starting to review annual contribution plans.

With that in mind, the Angel Fire Community Foundation has compiled a summary of grants awarded to non-profit entities primarily in the Angel Fire / Moreno Valley community in 2016-17.

The Foundation mission is to improve the quality of life for residents and visitors in the Moreno Valley. That is accomplished by connecting donors’ charitable giving goals with vital community needs while taking advantage of optimal tax benefits.

If you have funds, large or small, and would like to make a vital difference in a local need, why not make a tax-deductible donation to the Foundation. The Foundation is proud of the difference its donors have made in our community, and knows that… with more… it can do more.
