WE ARE LISTENING & LEARNING TOGETHER

Community Foundations have a rich history of community leadership: their work has long-centered on raising awareness and fostering community dialogue, identifying and engaging donors, and helping to set the agenda for community stability and well-being. Through this leadership, we are asking our community to join us in the learning and discussion around racial disparities and social equity issues.
