Leaders across the country are finding, creating and embracing new opportunities to use their local resources in ways that generate better economic prospects for their regions. Among regional, place-rooted institutions, community foundations have a unique position and mission to ensure that regional development efforts produce prosperity that is broadly shared.
Advancing Economic Success – Community Foundations Building Family, Community and Regional Prosperity provided an opportunity for community foundation leaders to more deeply explore and share how they are addressing critical community issues and working to advance regional development in ways that build wealth for all. At the event, participants learned about the organizing framework of Community Development Philanthropy and heard stories from community foundations that are helping families get ahead and those that are helping local and regional economies get ahead.
