With 30 years of experience, we are able to advise and collaborate with other nonprofit organizations and foundations for the betterment of our community. As an integral part of the community, Foundation staff can advise groups and individuals who are considering establishing a charitable organization about local needs
and the viability of their plans. We offer guidance in creating their organization, introduce them to additional funding sources, and provide examples of successful fundraising campaigns to help them gain support for their important work.
Educational opportunities such as the George L. Ruder Forum, Professional Advisors Symposium, and roundtable discussions address issues of current interest and importance to the community. Nonprofit leaders attending our Nonprofit Management Institute and Lunch and Learn sessions learn how to strengthen
their organization and become more effective in accomplishing their mission. They also benefit from networking with attendees from other charitable organizations.
Foundation staff is available for speaking engagements regarding the impact of our donors and philanthropy’s role in shaping the future of our community.
