Silicon Valley Community Foundation: 10 Years of Innovation and Impact
Celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2017, Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) is notable for more than just its size and rapid growth; SVCF consistently innovates on how community foundations can serve donors and their communities, and drives conversation about the changing role of community foundations as philanthropic institutions, including the definition of "community" itself. The report illustrates changes in SVCF's financial assets, gifts, and grants over time, and the grantmaking priorities of the foundation and its donors.
Foundation Maps for Community Foundations
As organizations that are especially in tune with the challenges facing their local communities, how can community foundations better inform their own grantmaking efforts? Who else has given funding in support of the populations they seek to serve? Are there gaps in funding that should be addressed? David Rosado, Member Services Manager for CF Insights, recently provided a tour of Foundation Maps through a community foundation lens. The webinar covered how to identify gaps in funding, contextualize your own grantmaking, and how you can coordinate with other organizations to achieve greater impact in support of your local communities.
