In the Community
Sharing our StoryDecember 06, 2012
This year’s annual report theme, Cause and Effect, reflects the Community Foundation’s deep devotion to our mission statement of Strengthening Community by Connecting People, Resources and Needs. It is also our chosen tag phrase for our latest venture, Lowcountry Volunteer Connections.
This web-based platform is making the connection between nonprofits in need of volunteers and the many generous members of our community willing to donate their time. It has just launched and we look forward to watching it grow and making a significant positive impact.
The history of the Community Foundation is one of leadership and funding support for innovative, significant undertakings that helps to shape our community. Examples of this work can be found in the pages of this year’s report and throughout our website. From supporting youth-serving nonprofits to protecting our fragile environment, the Community Foundation and its many generous donors have made many decisions, some of them hard, all of them thoughtful, over the course of this past year.
We are your Community Foundation and we hope you will join us as we look forward to the future. It holds endless possibilities; and there is something for everyone to do and make Every Day Matter.
Ernst Bruderer, Chairman, Board of Trustees
