Community Wish List

The Community Foundation prides itself on bringing people who care together with causes that matter.

The Community Wish List assists the Community Foundation of Macon County in our programming because if we don’t know the needs of our community, we can’t connect donors with those causes. We will update this list quarterly, sharing specific wishes from the Macon County Legacy nonprofit members.
