Collegiate Directions, a community partner that helps students succeed in college, hosted Dr. Tiffany Jones from the Education Trust to discuss A PROMISE FULFILLED: A Framework for Equitable Free College Programs. More and more states are pursuing Free College, yet Dr. Jones notes these programs do not always help those who need it most. Our Program Officer, Reyna Sharp, was grateful to attend and learn along with staff about the key elements of equitable Free College programs.
#Community: our commitment to participate, engage, listen and learn with the communities we support.
#Community: our approach to philanthropy and community partnership.
The work of the Crimsonbridge Foundation is built on and informed by relationships with trusted community partners, including individuals and institutions across nonprofit, private, and public sectors. It is also derived from the knowledge that funding alone is not enough to create lasting change and that we must go beyond traditional grantmaking to achieve shared goals of positive social impact.
#Community is the Crimsonbridge Foundation’s commitment to participate, engage, listen and learn with the communities we support. It is a team driven social philanthropy initiative to take relationships beyond grant proposals and engage directly with partners to better understand challenges, identify solutions, leverage new resources, celebrate success, and build community. It’s our approach to philanthropy and community partnership.
