Understanding the Roles of the Foundation vs Home Owner Associations


By Hidden Meadows Community Foundation

Over the last several months, the Hidden Meadows Community Foundation has hosted a series of town hall meetings, giving area residents an opportunity to express their hopes and desires for our community here in the Meadows.  The Foundation used input from those conversations to refocus its charitable activities (see related article in this issue of the newspaper).

It was apparent during the community forums that there was some confusion about the entities responsible for overseeing and/or funding different projects in Hidden Meadows.  We frequently heard comments like “I’m paying HOA fees; where’s all that money going anyway?”

The following chart might be helpful in clarifying the respective roles of the Community Foundation and different HOA’s in this area.
