Strengthening Communities

This blog spotlights Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, which was one of 10 recipients of the 2017 HUD Secretary’s Award for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships. The awards are a joint effort between the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Council on Foundations and honor 10 innovative and impactful cross-sector initiatives that have increased the quality of life for low- and moderate-income Americans living in urban, suburban, and rural communities across the nation.

Led by Suzanne Friday, Counsel for the Council on Foundations, this workshop is flexibly organized to ensure that your broad legal questions for administering funds, grants, and community foundation activities are addressed.

Convening centered on an opinion piece written by Kevin Murphy, President, Berks County Community Foundation during his 2016 tenure as Foundation Leader in Residence at the Council on Foundations, this interactive group discussion will focus on the rationale of asset growth, disruptions to the community foundation business model, and how changes in the local financial services field may force some fundamental changes on community foundations.
