In February, six nonprofits focused on college completion, who are members of the C3 Initiative, gathered for the third time since June to discuss how to ensure students persist and succeed in college. Jennifer Adams, College Success Director at CollegeTracks, kicked off the discussion with an insightful presentation on their approach to student engagement. Program Officer Reyna Sharp facilitated discussion with Caroline Wertz, Senior Program Officer with the Scheidel Foundation. Participants walked away with a refreshed perspective and practical tools to bring back to their teams. We look forward to the next C3 Initiative meeting this summer!
#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.
