The Community Foundation has a deep interest in deploying its resources to support transformational changes in our community, which often requires a significant investment of philanthropic capital. This desire has led to the development of Change Makers, introduced in 2017. Change Makers is a form of giving circle that brings together several donors in our community who, in partnership with the Community Foundation, collectively have the ability to provide grants as large as $250,000 or greater for initiatives to transform how our community responds to specific issues and opportunities.
For more information about the Change Makers program, please download and review the document entitled “A New Approach”. We also invite you to contact us if you would like to explore how to contribute an idea for a Change Maker grant or participate as one of our Change Maker donors.
