Every time we announce the latest grants through our competitive process, we remember the donors from the past who made unrestricted gifts and the donors today who add their support. Thanks to Community Funds and Advised Funds, the Community Foundation can award in May 2012 $1,107,000 in grants focused on two results: Children are successful along the education pipeline and People can lead healthy lives.
“We are indebted to our donors for their support throughout our history and for current partnerships through our Giving Together program,” said Kate Nielsen, president of the Community Foundation. “These generous families and individuals can be proud that their bequests and gifts are part of grants focused on reaching results our community wants for itself.”
This is the second year of competitive grantmaking using the Community Foundation’s Results Framework, which focuses on grants in line with key strategies. According to James McCrary, Vice President Grants and Evaluation for the Community Foundation, feedback from grants made in May 2011 already show early signs of progress, such as increased access to fresh produce in local “food deserts” and improved reading levels for pre-schoolers.
