Philanthropy is a powerful tool to improve communities and the lives of others. Staying on top of inventive methods of giving and innovative ideas and solutions is an effective way to ensure your philanthropic dollars are well invested and making an impact.
Each year The Community Foundation creates a calendar of opportunities for our donors to learn more about specific issues around giving and the Atlanta region. We recognize that your philanthropy is very personal to you and your family, but we also understand that many of you are interested in sharing ideas with each other and being more connected to the knowledgeable resources of The Community Foundation.
Below is a listing of events scheduled for 2013. We will mail reminders with additional details as each event approaches, and we’ll post event information on our website.

Please note: Donor events are open to only fund advisors of The Community Foundation, their families and those with planned gifts.
We hope you consider joining us at one or all of these informative and inspiring events!
