Who We Are


The Phelps County Community Foundation has been connecting people who care with causes that matter since 1976.  The Foundation was created through a gift from the estate of Irene Anderson.  This gift has blossomed into an organization supporting all of Phelps County through the generous efforts of many caring donors. 

The Phelps County Community Foundation is committed to helping donors find meaningful ways to support what is important to them and their families.  Donors make it possible for the Foundation to provide significant grants to groups and organizations as well as the ability to provide scholarships to students to achieve their educational dreams. 

Today, the Phelps County Community Foundation board and staff manage over 170 charitable funds while working with individuals, businesses, families and nonprofit organizations to enhance the quality of life in Phelps County.  Each gift, no matter the size, is important to our mission.
