our city through grants that we believe will make a real difference (for more information click here).​

We established the Hearth Community Fund as part of our desire to make a lasting contribution both now and for future generations. To serve the public good through investment in redevelopment and revitalization projects to the downtown and waterfront areas. To help create jobs, improve quality of life, and foster neighborhood pride.
