Fontana Community Foundation


On November 15, 2005, the Fontana City Council adopted Bylaws establishing the Fontana Community Foundation (FCF), a California non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. This foundation is a non-profit public benefit corporation, organized under Nonprofit Benefit Corporation Law for public purpose.

The Fontana Community Foundation was established for the purpose of aiding and assisting in the implementation, improvement, and maintenance of public services that preserve and promote the health, welfare, and education of local citizens. Current activity in this fund reflects grant application efforts. Expenditures remain the same; revenues increased slightly. 

The purpose of the Fontana Community Foundation includes:

  • To lessen the bourdon of government by aiding and assisting in the implementation, improvement, and maintenance of public services, that preserve and promote the health and welfare, and education of local citizenry of the City of Fontana
  • To form unincorporated divisions responsible for the furtherance of one or more such public services as deemed appropriate 
  • To receive, invest and utilize funds and properties acquired through the solicitation of contributions, donations, grants, gifts, bequests 

The Fontana Community Foundation is currently still in formation, the current by-law can be found here

The By-Laws established that the Mayor and the City Council would serve as Directors for the Foundation. Each year, the City Council elects a Foundation Chairperson from among its members. The remaining Council members serve as Foundation Board Directors. The Fontana Community Foundation's meetings coincide with City Council meetings. The Board of Directors for the Foundation also appointed specific officers to conduct the day-to-day business of the Foundation. Those officers included the positions of President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary.
