Supporting Our Efforts to Help Our Community
On any given week at The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County office, staff members run out the door to attend board meetings, to sit on task forces, to strategize at planning sessions, and to lead summit meetings. Much more than the administrative body for charitable giving, the collective expertise at The Community Foundation has become the go-to place for guidance, participation, and collaborative help across the non-profit sector. The Leadership Fund supports this vitally important work.
Since its founding in 1998, The Community Foundation has participated in such projects as the County’s 10-year Plan to End Homelessness; two Nonprofit Collaboration Summits with the United Way; and the 2025 Senior Symposium ― to name just a few. The Leadership Fund, an endowment held by The Community Foundation, ensures that this crucial guidance, sound direction, and expert assistance can be sustained.
Growing philanthropy through activities that:
- Engage new donors in local causes
- Bring players together to address complex issues
- Strengthen nonprofit organizations
