Join us for a day and a half regional convening focused on community philanthropy as an engine for inclusive community and economic development in Minneapolis, MN.
In a nation deeply divided by partisan politics, we can turn to the work being done at the grassroots in our communities as a source of hope, information, and change. Join us for a conference call with Samuel Bressi, President & CEO of the Lancaster Country Community Foundation, who was featured in the New York Times for LCCF's work in the Greater Lancaster, PA area.
The Council, The Spartanburg County Foundation, and the Southeastern Council of Foundations spent a day and a half convening in the South to focus on community philanthropy''s potential as an engine for inclusive community and economic development.
Community development improves lives and builds prosperity by maximizing the potential of a place. Combine this with the role of catalyzing and raising resources from a community on behalf of a community, a Community Foundation can capitalize on its unique role as a convener, grantmaker, and endowment builder for greater community prosperity with simple practices taken from community and economic development strategies.
