Our country is blessed with many community foundations doing outstanding work, and we need your help in recognizing and celebrating some of the best work of these foundations.
On September 23rd, during Council on Foundation’s Community Foundation Conference in San Diego, NCRP’s Aaron Dorfman will be joined by Antonia Hernandez, president and CEO of the California Community Foundation, and Flozell Daniels, president and CEO of the Foundation for Louisiana to present: “The Community Foundation Hall of Fame: Outstanding & Replicable Success Stories.”
In this highly interactive session, the three presenters will showcase 10 success stories from community foundations nationwide. NCRP has been scouring community foundation websites, researching stories in the news, and speaking with our community foundation colleagues.
We are looking for community foundations that go above and beyond! So, we are seeking nominations for community foundations that create greater positive impact for their communities, such as through their discretionary dollars and donor-advised funds, respected reputations, leadership, convening spaces, socially just strategies, commitment to serve marginalized communities, etc.
Nominate community foundations that meet these characteristics!
With many fantastic community foundations doing outstanding and replicable work, we need your help to narrow down the list to just 10 community foundations. You can help by answering the question:
Which community foundations should be recognized in the Community Foundation Hall of Fame and why?
Send your nominations to Christine Reeves at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to include the name of the community foundation and why you think they should be included in the hall of fame. And yes, you can nominate more than one!
Deadline for nominations is September 1st.
Please help us spread this call for nominations far and wide! Send a tweet (use the hash tag #CommFdnHallofFame) or share on Facebook.
