The Henry Whitfield House

The historic Henry Whitfield House

The mission of the Guilford Foundation is to connect people who care with the causes that matter to them, to enrich the quality of life in Guilford; now and for generations to come.

We do this by raising private dollars, pooling those donations, and investing these contributions in an endowment fund. Each year, we use a portion of the income from the endowment fund to grant projects and organizations that work to assist our neighbors and enhance Guilford’s quality of life. Thanks to the generosity of our community, the Guilford Foundation is now able to grant more than $100,000 each year.

NEW in 2018!

We recently worked with our donors and our local service organizations to revise our grant making process to be more transparent, proactive and responsive to Guilford’s changing needs. Beginning in 2018, the Guilford Foundation will move to a single grant application process for the majority of its grant making. Click here for the details.
