The first community foundation - the Cleveland Foundation - was established in 1914. More than 100 years later, there are now an estimated 1,700 community foundations worldwide. Many of these foundations have deep, long-term ties to the communities they serve and billions of dollars in asset dedicated to sustaining nonprofit activity. How can they continue to innovate, and continue to serve the immediate and long term needs of the communities they serve?
