How Community Foundations Promote Civic Engagement
50 Years Later, a Community Foundation Carries MLK's Legacy Forward
Like most community foundations, The Miami Foundation exists to do much more than help donors give money to their favorite causes.
It also aims to do something much more profound: to identify important community problems and play a leading role in engaging its residents to address these problems.
Closing the Opportunity Gap in Austin, Texas
Fifty years after he was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn., Martin Luther King Jr.’s presence remains strong in this Southern city.
A special series of grants by the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis aims to make sure Dr. King’s vision continues to positively shape his former hometown for years to come.
While Austin has experienced tremendous economic growth over the past decade, data shows that not all Central Texans have the same access to opportunity. As the region balances on an inflection point of growth and change, Austin Community Foundation is focused on closing the opportunity gap through research, pooled resources and data-driven grantmaking.
