A Message from the Community Foundation's Board Chair and its President/CEO
The Community Foundation Serving Greeley and Weld County is pleased to present this 2015 Annual Report to you, the Foundation’s donors, volunteers, partners, and other supporters.
2015 marked the first year for us to work together as Chair of the Board of Directors and as President/CEO of the Foundation. The leadership transition went smoothly, but the year proved to be a challenging one in the financial markets. As always, due to the dedication of board and staff and the generous work of volunteers, the Foundation continued to make a positive impact on the community.
Last year, the Community Foundation provided $1.9 million in grant and program support to more than 115 organizations. It also awarded 85 scholarships totaling more than $163,000 to area students. On behalf of the board and staff of the Community Foundation, we would like to thank you for your generous support.
Your involvement allowed the Foundation to connect donors to non-profits that help Weld County thrive. Including the many causes that Foundation donors specifically choose, endowments and other funds continue to be the locomotive that drives the work of supporting youth programs and scholarships, fostering the arts, serving as a resource to other non-profits, contributing to human services programs, animal welfare programs, and more.
We hope that you will continue to contribute to the good work of the Community Foundation in whatever way possible. Together, in 2016 we will continue to make a lasting impact in our communities for decades to come.
Rob Waldo Rand E. Morgan
Chair, Board of Directors President/CEO
