Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers (CFTT) participates in National Effort to Highlight Local Impact of Philanthropy

Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers (CFTT) participates in National Effort to Highlight Local Impact of Philanthropy

During the week of November 12-18, 2012, Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers will join more than 700 community foundations across America for Community Foundation Week to share the stories of lives changed and communities transformed through philanthropy’s partnership with private and public community leaders and organizations.

The Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers has spent the last ten years addressing the most pressing issues facing the communities they serve, Community foundations impact lives and improve futures,” said Angela Klopf, CFTT CEO. “In a down economy, with limited resources and a growing need for services to help families in need, we are more determined than ever to bring our community partners together to find innovative and effective solutions to some of our most challenging social problems"

Community foundations are independent, public entities that steward philanthropic resources from institutional and individual donors to local nonprofits that are the heart of strong, vibrant communities. They provide a variety of giving vehicles for anyone wanting to make a difference in their community. Most charitable gifts are spent immediately, but an endowment fund through CFTT provides an on-going revenue stream “For Good… For Ever!”

Community foundations represent one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy. Every state in the United States is home to at least one community foundation—large and small, urban and rural—that is advancing solutions to a wide range of social issues.

Launched in 1989 through a proclamation by former president George H.W. Bush, the first Community Foundation Week included a congressional briefing about the work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative approach to working with the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to address community problems.
