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 help lawmakers understand the vital role that community foundations play in their communities, whether they represent a big city, small town, or rural area.

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.
