We are also celebrating National Community Foundation Week, November 12-18, 2015. Community foundations impact lives, solve problems, and improve futures. As many residents grapple with limited resources and a growing need for services, we are more determined than ever to bring our community partners together to find innovative and effective solutions for some of our most challenging social problems.
Community foundations are independent, public entities that steward philanthropic resources connecting donor generosity to local nonprofits that are the heart of strong, vibrant communities. Community Foundation Week recognizes the work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative approach to working with the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to address community problems.
