What are we doing together? We are giving and we are getting results, as we share in our most recent Report to the Community, now available by mail or here on our website: CFGBReporttoCommunity2011
From Gillian Goodrich, our board chair; Robert Holmes, vice-chair, and Kate Nielsen, president, you will get an overview of the power of partnerships, including:
- $10 million TIGER IV grant for which the Community Foundation and our donors provided part of the vital local match
- Grant to a new medical clinic that reduces emergency room visits by 69 percent
- $3.6 million in gifts for tornado recovery, helping to restore homes and communities for hundreds of families across our state
Looking back at 2011 and the first part of 2012, we see so much great progress and even more potential for the future. We invite you to sample those stories, both in the Report and across our website.
And we invite you to join us — because TOGETHER we can do so much more than any one person or organization can do alone. Contact Erin Stephenson if you want to give or go on line. Or, if you are already a Community Foundation donor, contact Kathryn Corey to find out how you can leverage your own charitable giving through our Giving Together program.
