Programs: For nearly 50 years, the community foundation for the greater capital region has worked to improve the quality of life in the region by promoting and facilitating effective philanthropy. Our success is directly related to our generous donors who invest through the community foundation in our area's most effective nonprofit organizations. Currently, the foundation administers more than 400 separate charitable funds, with assets totaling nearly $65 million. The foundation provides high-impact, flexible giving opportunities for donors; major funding for nonprofit organizations, and scholarships for local students; leadership around key community issues; and unsurpassed knowledge of community needs and trends. In 2014, the community foundation awarded nearly $4. 2 million to more than 1,100 nonprofit organizations and scholarship recipients in the capital region and across the country. Since inception, we have invested more than $50 million in our communities through grant and scholarship funding. Our grant funding achieves meaningful, measurable results and leverages significant investments from other foundations, donors, and government sources.
