A Message from our President and CEO:
Our 2020 Annual Report showcases the remarkable outpouring of generosity we have experienced during a time of immense need and great uncertainty. You opened your hearts during the pandemic which allowed the Foundation to respond to heightened community needs by providing a record-setting $4 million in grant funding. It is your trust in the Foundation over the past 67 years that has enabled us to serve as a successful grantmaker, a charitable resource, a catalyst for change and growth, and a convener, and we do not take this trust for granted.
We take great pride in maintaining our commitment to service and to effective stewardship, which is reflected in the reaccreditation we received in 2020 from the Council on Foundations as having the highest standards for community foundations nationwide. This reaccreditation represents accountability, impact, and distinction, and ensures you, our charitably-minded donors and friends, that you are working with a credible partner which provides a sound place to entrust your charitable assets.
In late 2020, we worked with our Board of Governors, donors, partners, and other community leaders to develop an ambitious three-year strategic framework. As we embark on this new long-range plan and look to the future, we do so with hope and gratitude, and an unwavering commitment to our donors, and to the needs of our communities.
We sincerely thank you for your support in 2020 and we look forward to what we will accomplish together in the future.
