Community Foundation Week Celebrates Local Giving
Each year, over 750 Community Foundations Celebrate Community Foundation Week November 12 – 18. Officially proclaimed by President George H.W. Bush in 1989, the Community Foundation of NCW wants to take the opportunity to thank and recognize our generous donors and partners.
Last year YOUR community foundation received $3.7 million in gifts and awarded $2.8 million to programs that protect our environment, embrace our cultures, preserve our history, and shape our future.
For all of this: WE THANK YOU.
We hope you take a moment today or sometime this week to embrace your inner philanthropist and consider supporting your favorite local cause. Whether it’s time or money, we all have something to give.
On Thursday, November 14th, you can support your community foundation – just by having dinner! Join us at SOUTH at Pybus from 5:00pm – 9:00pm and 20% of all food sales will benefit the foundation. Those funds will go right back into supporting communities across NCW. We hope to see you there!
