Altona Community Foundation

Mission

The mission of the Altona Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of life in Altona, Gretna, Rosenfeld and Rhineland. This is done by soliciting funds for our capital reserve and distributing the interest earned each year to worthy community projects.

Description

The Foundation supports projects related to youth, education, health and community development. A contribution to the Foundation lasts forever as the capital reserve is always left intact while the interest earned is invested back into the community.
