We are a newly formed Community Foundation established to inspire, through engagement & promotion, a shared responsibility for the social Health & Well-being of De Soto Residents and surrounding Families. 



Starting a fund with a Community Foundation can be a smart choice for so many reasons. Paula Hickman of Shreveport, Louisiana Community Foundation so graciously stated "You don't have to be a Rockefeller to give, because everyone of us has something to share".  Your giving has a place with us, and with our community. 

While foundations are often primarily engaged in grantmaking activities, some may engage in their own direct charitable activities or programs. 

So what ARE your resources? Time, expertise in a hobby or occupation, or maybe just the love of books.

We want to help connect you to where your life has value. A place where we are creating something bigger than we can dream, together.


Our Vision

To be able to connect our community's resources to our community's needs. Through shared resources, renewed civic responsibility and educational opportunities we believe that we can ultimately generate a higher quality of life for our neighbors and ourselves.

You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
