Where Giving has Grown for Over 80 Years
The Inland Empire Community Foundation
In 1941, Charles Brouse established The Community Foundation to provide scholarships for local students attending Riverside City College. Eighty years later, it’s easy to imagine that Charles would be proud – and perhaps astounded – at the extraordinary commitment our communities have made to his vision of philanthropy. Today, the Inland Empire Community Foundation invests and administers more than $120 million in charitable assets entrusted to us by generous donors for the benefit of students, families, and the pressing needs of our times.
We are a Foundation of and for the community. 2022 marked a landmark celebration of our 80th Anniversary during which we honored the past and embraced the future. Together, we’re walking into the next 80 years emboldened by the history of our accomplishments. True to Charles Brouse’s vision, we will combine our passions and resources to make the Inland Empire even better than we found it.
