Places not people

Community foundations are (at least in the US) partially defined by their commitment to a community defined by geography. Some of them are defined exclusively this way, such as the Ocean Foundation, The Sierra Fund, the Colorado Conservation Trust, and the Alaska Conservation Foundation. These are not just placed-based community foundations, they are community foundations for places - water, mountains, and the open space of Colorado and Alaska, respectively.
