Independent Charitable organizations, such as the Community Fund, were popular donation sites for community members after the 1929 stock market crash. The stock marked crash launched the U.S into the Great Depression, an event that relied heavily on private charities that relied on funding from the federal government, whose unavailable funding caused the economy to fail. Community Funds are independent charitable organizations with broad missions that support the development of the community they serve. Communities supported and trusted in broader, community-wide charities as opposed to larger, private charities.
