The Community Foundation has a long history of identifying and supporting grassroots community projects and supporting residents who are making a difference in their neighborhoods.
Neighborhood Leadership Program
The Community Foundation's Neighborhood Leadership Program builds community and strengthens relationships. Participants take leadership training workshops that teach effective ways to work with groups in their neighborhood. At the end the training, participants can receive a grant to implement a project of their choice.
Neighborhood Leaders Making a Difference
The Neighborhood Leadership Program "helped me build a level of trust with my neighbors," says condo owner and program graduate Jacquelyn Pheanious, who organized neighbors to reactivate a dormant board.
Twenty-five years of developing neighborhood leaders has resulted in many community-inspired projects.
