Our Mission

Connecting people, charitable causes and community needs. 


Blue Mountain Community Foundation (BMCF) started in 1984 based on the idea that the area needed a place for donors who cared about the community to make long-term investments. Joining a community foundation movement in the United States that began in 1914, BMCF is one of over 750 community foundations. A group of 36 local citizens, under the guidance of Pete Peery and John Reese, were the initial corporate members who resolved to form a nonprofit corporation. Since securing its first endowed fund, the Foundation has grown to over $38 million in 260 charitable funds.
