The Role and Reach of Community Foundations (USA)
This report presents the findings of a survey of community foundations in the United States, designed and conducted during the summer of 2004 by the Aspen Institute Community Strategies Group (CSG). Among its initiatives, the Community Strategies Group manages the Rural Development Philanthropy (RDP) Learning Network, a diverse group of community foundations and philanthropic and development organizations committed to strengthening and sustaining rural communities. As part of this RDP work, the survey sought information about the state of local philanthropy in rural areas, focusing on the incidence and growth of geographic component funds (GCFs).
