The mission of the Twin Falls Community Foundation is to contribute to the quality of life throughout the Twin Falls area by fostering and enhancing charitable giving and philanthropy.
Established in 2007, our 501(c)(3) nonprofit helps local organizations implement community projects by providing accounting services and ways for donors to make tax-deductible donations.
We have been fortunate to help develop many local community projects by serving nonprofit organizations as charity navigators.
We have an executive board and by-laws, and strict guidelines to aide any non profit organization as they pursue funding.
Current and past projects and their impact on the community. As charity navigators, we assist with all types of nonprofit organizations.
Since the establishment of the Twin Falls Community Foundation, a non profit organization, the board of directors has been working on the redevelopment of the Main Avenue Fountain Plaza. In 2014, this redevelopment project, officially named the Downtown Commons, was relocated across the street to the site of the old Rogerson Hotel.
The original design was modified to better complement a major redevelopment of three blocks of Main Ave and the remodel of a building across the street to a new City Hall.
On Jan 29, 2018 Twin Falls Community Foundation Chairman Leonard Anderson presented a check to the City of Twin Falls for $119, 021.65 to help in the development of the 2 million dollar Downtown Commons project.
Dedication and a ribbon cutting ceremony took place on July 6, 2018.
To help make the dedication of the park even more special Miles Dasher skydived into the park area. See video below.
