At the Community Foundation, we believe that our community is strongest when we work together to solve our most pressing problems. Here are three ways why a connected community produces impact.
- First, we can always do more together than any one individual or one organization can do on its own. True synergy exists when one plus one truly equals three … or more! The math may be bad, but the principle is solid.
- When we work together, we can leverage each other’s strengths and compensate for each other’s weaknesses. No one individual or organization can do everything well. However, when we bring our best selves together, truly remarkable things can happen.
- Finally, by working together we can focus on critical issues with intensity and resource. Think laser versus light bulb. The power of focus can accomplish great things.
The Community Foundation strives to be the trusted leader in strategic generosity, which is focused and collaborative by its very nature. We believe that our community is indeed stronger together, and we are proud to be a part of bringing donors together to solve big problems in new and innovative ways.
