The community foundation field is one of the fastest growing philanthropic sectors in the United States today. Community foundations build and strengthen communities in a multitude of ways, including providing the means for a wide range of donors to create permanent funds to meet critical needs. Though the first community foundation was launched just over 100 years ago in Cleveland, Ohio, today there are more than 750 community foundations in the United States.  This week we celebrate community foundations!
