Community Foundations leading on Community Engagement - Resident Engagement Guidebook - This Guidebook was created as an early tool for community foundations interested in more deeply engaging residents. As community foundations have adopted new tools and approaches to strengthening their communities, resident engagement has emerged as a key practice. This Guidebook is designed to assist community foundations as they explore the range of efforts and activities that encompass resident engagement. It also describes why such efforts are critical to community change and deeper, long-lasting community impact.
We just announced our CARES Community Grants for 2015. We will be hosting information sessions on January 7th and January 8th --- 10 to 12pm, and 1 to 3pm on both days. People can attend the sessions at either the Corbin or Manchester Campuses.
