What is the Columbus Community Foundation?
Originally a silent but generous and charitable organization...
Founded in 1991 by a group of businessmen, the Columbus Community Foundation has grown from a silent, but generous and charitable organization to a Foundation committed to making a lasting impact on Columbus and the surrounding community.
Grounded in the fundamental roots of its Founders, the Columbus Community Foundation (CCF for short) promotes the management of charitable gifts allowing individuals to make a lasting contribution to their community.

The Cherokee County WWI Veterans Memorial
The Cherokee County WWI Veterans Memorial, commonly known as the Clock Tower, was originally made possible through civic contributions in 1919. Through a series of events, the refurbished memorial now sits on the courthouse lawn in a clock tower. The renovation and continued maintenance of the Clock Tower is made possible, in part, by grants through Columbus Community Foundation.
