How do your measure your Community Foundation? A recently released ranking showed that we are doing a good job of putting our community’s endowment to work through grants.
Our ranking as the 46th most active grantmaker among more than 200 community foundations, based on a 12 percent distribution rate, gives us a benchmark for future measurements. Like other community foundations across the country, we can use this and other benchmarks to help us improve our performance in areas that matter to us.
The “most active grantmaker” listing determines rank by dividing the total assets of each community foundation into its grantmaking total to determine an overall distribution rate.
