NVCF Launches Center for Community Engagement

Through the launch of the Center, NVCF is pursuing its commitment to identifying emerging challenges in our region. We address those challenges through bringing together diverse groups of problem-solvers, mobilizing resources, and equipping community leaders. We build and energize a community of engaged citizens and philanthropists who strengthen the common good.



Community foundations have traditionally helped local donors support local charities. North Valley Community Foundation is doing more — we are an active leader in their community. We have become actively engaged in important, sometimes controversial, regional issues. By becoming a “community catalyst” through more strategic engagement with our philanthropic partners, we can leverage our role in leading our community to more informed and strategic community engagement.
