Community Foundation Week Resources
Celebrating National Community Foundation Week
November 12-18: Engage with Your Local Community Today!
Community Foundation Week, created in 1989 by former President George H.W. Bush, recognizes the important work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative and innovative approach to working with the public, private, and nonprofit sector. Annually, Community Foundation Week coincides with National Philanthropy Day on November 15. Help raise awareness by telling your community about the work that your foundation is doing to address persistent civic and economic challenges.
To help support your work, the Council has designed a series of resources to assist you with outreach and awareness, including a draft press release, sample social media messages as well as general facts about community foundations.
We look forward to celebrating with you this year!
