Celebrating Community Foundation Week, November 12-18, 2020
The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County will join in a nationwide celebration, November 12-18, 2020, to recognize the increasingly important role community foundations play in fostering local collaboration and innovation to address persistent civic and economic challenges.
For more than a century, community foundations have served as a trusted partner and resource whose effect can be seen in the lives of millions and in the vibrant neighborhoods that continue to thrive through their mission-driven work. During this time, community foundations come together to share and reflect on the stories of impact over the past year.
“The Community Foundation has flourished through the generosity of countless individuals, families, and businesses who have shared their time, expertise, and financial resources in support of our mission throughout the past twenty years.” said Revlan Hill, Executive Director. “We aspire to establish and manage many more charitable funds that will serve this community today and in perpetuity.”
Community Foundation Week was created in 1989 by former president George H.W. Bush to recognize the work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative approach to working with the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to address community problems.
