Leadership Initiatives

We're taking the lead where our community needs us.

As the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County has grown, we’ve developed an important role as a leader. We do more than simply collect and disperse funding: We identify shared issues and concerns within our community, we convene groups to facilitate dialogue about those issues, and—once we’ve gathered as much data as we can and listened to as many voices as possible—we propose solutions.

This process takes the form of major Foundation-driven initiatives, including those listed to the left. Take a little time to read about what we’ve been doing to address these important issues that impact every member of our community.
