Our educational events featuring financial and issue experts are held throughout the year. We host walking tours, panel discussions and other events that focus on specific issues or regions and what we can do to help.

Our donor orientation sessions show donors how to make the most of The Community Foundation’s services and charitable-giving resources.

In addition, each year we sponsor an invitation-only discussion forum geared toward donors, prospective donors, and financial advisors featuring some of today’s foremost speakers on charitable giving and philanthropic investment trends.
