New and Noteworthy
As your Community Foundation, we strive to be the resource for you that takes all of that data and turns it into actionable knowledge that will inform your community philanthropy. As we shared at the Annual Community Meeting in April, the data for Washtenaw County shows us that our collective work together is not done.
The Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation (AAACF) has been awarded the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary’s Award for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships, accepted on behalf of the Washtenaw Coordinated Funders.
Many thanks to everyone who attended our Annual Community Meeting on April 11, 2016 at Washtenaw Community College! Check out the photos and presentation slides here.
AAACF just announced a new $1 million-dollar endowed scholarship fund, the Level the Playing Field Fund, created by an anonymous donor. As its name implies, the Level the Playing Field Fund is intended to create a more equitable means for students to succeed.
As a Community Foundation, how should we balance investing in people, investing in places, investing in institutions, and investing in causes?
