Chickasaw County Community Foundation Joins Nationwide Celebration to Recognize Local Community Impact

Posted: Tue, November 10, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Chickasaw County Community Foundation Joins Nationwide Celebration to Recognize Local Community Impact

 

November 9, 2020 - The Chickasaw County Community Foundation will celebrate Community Foundation Week, November 12-18, 2020. This nationwide event recognizes the increasingly important role community foundations play in fostering local collaboration and innovation to address persistent civic and economic challenges.

 

The Chickasaw County Community Foundation is an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa (CFNEIA), which is confirmed in compliance with national standards for U.S. community foundations. CFNEIA was established in 1956 and serves a 20-county region with 23 affiliate community foundations led by over 350 local community volunteers. In 2019, CFNEIA and its affiliates granted over $5.7 million across the region. Since its inception, CFNEIA has granted over $100 million to organizations enriching the communities they serve.

 

CFNEIA provides administrative and fiduciary support to Chickasaw County Community Foundation, which is led by a local volunteer committee that connects inspired people to the causes they care about, enriches communities through grantmaking to local nonprofits, and provides leadership for positive community change in Chickasaw County.

 

Community Foundation Week also coincides with National Philanthropy Day, November 15, which signifies the importance of coming together for the common good.

 

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. They also represent one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy.

 

As community foundations find solutions for communities large and small, urban and rural - it is the collective work of these organizations that will have the most profound impact. This was most evident amid this year's coronavirus pandemic where over $1 billion was distributed by community foundations in response to the crisis. CFNEIA and its affiliates have granted over $500,000 to nonprofits on the frontline of the pandemic.

 

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.
