Connecting people of diverse backgrounds and encouraging their involvement in civic life is necessary in a democracy. Below is a list of four funds at the Community Foundation that support civic engagement:
Father Atwell Memorial Fund

NeighborGood Program Fund
Donors to this fund help stabilize and strengthen city neighborhoods, currently through NeighborGood grants to resident-led associations and block clubs.
One City Fund
The Mayor’s Office, in recognition of decreasing availability of public funds, has created this fund in support of Mayor Duffy’s mission of “One City: Rochester.”
Winters Family Fund to Promote Diversity & Inclusion
