OUR LOGO

Small CFMDIN Logo

Our stylized eternal flame - designed by a community leader in 1985 - is a symbol of the lasting effect a gift of today can have for generations to come. The Community Foundation offers a way to assure that one’s generosity, either by gift or bequest, will have a permanent impact on our community far beyond the donor’s lifetime. The flame reflects three concepts central to the mission of the Foundation:

  • Perpetuity
  • Intensity of Need and Commitment
  • The Optimism and Reality of a Better Quality of Life
