Community Foundation Centennial
More than 1750 community foundations worldwide in 100 years...and still counting! 2014 marks the centennial of the The Cleveland Foundation, the world's first community foundation. Learn more about key players in the global community foundation movement here.
Coming soon! To mark the centennial, the Center will soon be presenting "Spotlight on Community Foundations" a body of research on community foundations (and community philanthropy) by selected Center Fellows from around the globe.
