As we celebrate and ponder a century of Community Foundation impact in our society, the convergence of community and climate is increasingly relevant. In just a few days, EGA, the Council on Foundations, and Funders Network for Smart Growth are bringing together community foundations who have led the field in incorporating sustainable communities and resilience into their work with leaders in climate science to have more dialogue on how environment, communities and community foundations connect and need to connect as we face increasing challenges to our neighborhood and world.

100 years. A lot happens in 100 years. Just take a moment to imagine life in 1914. An unprecedented World War was just starting. The Great Depression, the Civil Rights movement, and personal computers were still in the future. Even the science fiction of the time couldn’t predict the world of 2014.

Fifteen years ago, a dedicated group of Appalachian Ohio’s leaders recognized a significant gap in their region. Appalachian Ohio was woefully undercapitalized in philanthropic resources, making it harder for the region’s communities to address challenges and pursue opportunities. The philanthropy gap was standing in the way of community and regional progress so, leaders from across the region created the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio (FAO).

On a busy Monday morning, attorney and community advocate Steve Reyes arrives for his first day on the job. Already there are back-to-back meetings and everyone on staff seems to need a few minutes to talk with him.

The Richmond Community Foundation began, in 2002, what was to become its largest community initiative: The Nystrom United Revitalization Effort (NURVE). The Foundation began to convene Richmond, California community residents and stakeholders through focus groups, surveys and planning charrettes to develop a vision for the Nystrom community, considered at the time one of the most violent communities in the United States.
