Community Foundations bring many resources to the work we do. While grant-making is the most obvious tool, it is only one of a number of resources that a Community Foundation can bring to bear to address the needs of our communities. The range of tools include but are not limited to the standing, reputation and independence of the Community Foundation, the clout and access of individual board members, the institution's financial integrity and management capacity, and the capacity to undertake a broad range of activities such as commission research, convene competing interests, introduce ideas and speakers from outside our communities, take groups from our community to visit other exemplary sites, celebrate and honor promising ideas and people whose values we want to encourage. This essay explores how Community Foundations of all sizes can bring to bear these many advantages on behalf of our communities and institutions.Link: http://www.tcfn.efc.be/download.php?d=9
