Looking back over the past few years of economic difficulty for our region, the Foundation has seen exponential growth in our impact on community needs with minimal change in our operating funds. While economic reality has set in, we have reinvented the way we operate to use limited resources as a springboard to great accomplishments.
In the past year, the Foundation fulfilled its mission with two significant strategies: first, by dedicating resources to help organizations reach success with a final push toward their goal, and second, by advancing the GiveLocalNow initiative to grow philanthropy.
