About this funder:



At Consolidated Communications, we live and work in the communities we serve and we are committed to being a community partner. The Consolidated Communications Foundation was founded in 1992 by employees and management in our California market and later expanded to our Kansas market. 

To date, the California and Kansas chapters of the Foundation have given more than $5.5 million to communities through local non-profits and organizations who are serving those in need and creating more vibrant communities in which to live and work.

Our Foundation is funded through the generosity of our current and retired employees, who voluntarily make payroll contributions that are matched by the company.

Strong community involvement has long been a commitment of Consolidated Communications. Through the support of employees and management, we are able to continue our legacy of giving back to the communities where our employees and customers live, work and play.

All administrative costs of our Foundation are absorbed by Consolidated Communications, so 100 percent of all funds donated by employees and the company go directly to the organizations in need.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Consolidated Communications Foundation is to give back to the communities we serve by supporting non-profit organizations that serve those in need and create more vibrant communities in which to live and work.
