The Community Foundation Public Awareness Initiative includes more than 115 community foundations in 48 states working to educate the public about how we’re improving communities.

We also work with the media to help them gain information about community foundations as they cover topics such as philanthropy, tax policy, and social change.
Our goal: to ensure community foundations continue to transform lives for decades to come.
