Research Supports the Value of Community Foundations: Initiative & Leadership

Community foundations play important roles in their communities regardless of their strategic orientation. Acting as a steward of community resources is important. Supporting the capacity of local nonprofits through grant making is important. But for those community foundations who embrace community leadership, the emphasis on changing conditions highlighted some exciting initiatives that had the potential to re-shape communities.

Background:  In the fall of 2019, we discussed a research project on community foundations by Dr. Laurie Paarlberg, Charles Stewart Mott Chair on Community Foundations and professor of philanthropic studies at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, and Dr. Marlene Walk, assistant professor of public affairs at the Paul H. O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
