The Community Foundation is dedicated to strengthening our community for present and future generations. To fulfill this mission, we actively seek partnerships with local corporations, government agencies, other private foundations and a variety of nonprofit community groups to leverage our resources for maximum impact.
We have five distinct priorities for our community partnerships:
- Community revitalization
- Diversity and race relations
- Regionalism initiatives involving neighboring counties
Current Community Partnerships
The Building Stronger Neighborhoods program, through neighborhood development and grantmaking, supports Greensboro neighborhoods as they mobilize assets to enhance community quality of life. BSN is supported by the Building Stronger Neighborhoods Coalition: Cemala Foundation, Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, Greensboro Public Library, Moses Cone~Wesley Long Community Health Foundation, and Weaver Foundation.
This coalition of service providers, funders, faith-based groups, corporations and community volunteers supports HIV/AIDS-related projects countywide.
SPICE projects are designed to help moms and dads improve their parenting skills and become more involved in their child’s learning.
The Alliance pursues policies and initiatives that promote education and help each of us reach our potential. One example: Donors Choose – a website matching donors with teachers who have special classroom needs.
The Consortium seeks to build a more effective nonprofit sector through education and resource-sharing. More than 100 local nonprofits are members.
