Community foundations are grant-making charities that are dedicated to improving the lives of people in a defined local geographic area. They bring together the financial resources of individuals, families, and businesses to support effective nonprofits in their communities. In this session you will be exposed to two community foundations that are doing highly impactful work to end homelessness and develop affordable housing within the geographic regions they serve. You will learn about how Foundations operate and what you can do to access community foundation resources in your geography. When you’re thinking about sources of funding to propel your affordable housing and community development work, consider the value of community foundations to help you reach other potential partners in your community, as well as accessing funding for a particular initiative.
