Why have our donors given?

  • “We give because it benefits the city of Pleasant Hill. It makes it a better place to live.”
  • “I had a dental practice for 40 years in Pleasant Hill and found it was a wonderful place to have a practice. I like to give a little back to the community in appreciation.”
  • “We want to help on a local level; to do something for our own community.”
  • “I had the pleasure of serving on the city council for a number of years and it gave me a great feeling of reward and pleasure. Because of that, I’m making a modest contribution by giving something back to the community.”
  • “I give because I support the vision of the Foundation – I too want to further enhance the quality of life in Pleasant Hill. It has been a wonderful community to raise my children and now, grow old in.”


Individuals and families have established endowments to develop funds that provide for regular giving as well as tax deductions for the donor.
