Let’s Talk: Listening & Learning for Community Foundation Donors in Small Group Conversations

Given where we are, now more than ever, we need to hear your voice.  As part of a community we need your input as we work to impact critical areas affecting our community.  


Share your thoughts. What do you see as critical issues? What role does philanthropy play?

Learn more about ways that Community Foundation donors have moved forward initiatives that have the greatest impact  in our community.

Hear from others who also have a passion for philanthropy.

We are seeking to hear from donors, as part of our Let’s Talk Philanthropy; 2017 Listening Learning Series.  Please contact Amy LeViere at or 272-9333 ext 206, for details, or if you would like to attend and share your thoughts and perspective on one of these topics. 

Please let us know if there is another topic that you think we should offer as part of this series.
