Happy Community Foundation Week from your friendly local community foundation! We at the Centre Foundation have been serving this community since 1981, distributing grants to nonprofit organizations in need and setting up endowment funds that ensure local charities will have funding in perpetuity and give donors the chance to create a lasting legacy of philanthropy in this community we love so much.
We join more than 700 community foundation nationwide in celebrating Community Foundation Week 2012, happening now through Saturday, Nov. 18. In 2011, community foundations gave an estimated $4.2 BILLION to support their local communities, and we are proud to be a part of that important contribution.
It’s fitting that this week falls right before Thanksgiving, because we are very thankful for all of our donors, grantees and everyone who contributes to making our community a wonderful place to live and work.
