Donor Education Series

In Our Backyard

The Community Foundation is committed to educating members of the Foundation family about issues in our community.  These education sessions are part of a broader In Our Backyard series, which is an interactive forum for our donors to engage in a dialogue with local nonprofits about the important work being done in San Luis Obispo County.

In Our Backyard seeks to build a bridge between local nonprofits and Community Foundation donors.  Each year, we focus on different issues impacting our community, such as women and girls, early literacy and our local environment.  We hope our donor education series provides a platform for nonprofit agencies to present their work so that donors are empowered and informed about the important issues in our community.

For more information about the In Our Backyard series, please contact Donor Services at or call 805-543-2323.
