At the invitation of community partner, Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy (MCAEL), our Program Officer, Caitlin Furey, joined MCAEL’s Executive Director, Kathy Stevens, and Communications and Outreach Coordinator, Monica Casañas, as well as representatives from the Literacy Council of Montgomery County, Identity, Linkages for Learning, College Tracks, and Nonprofit Montgomery for an opportunity to listen and learn at “Be in The Room Where It Happens,” the Committee for Montgomery’s Annual Legislative Breakfast. One resonating message from Senator Chris Van Hollen’s keynote address – the importance of inclusivity in our community!
#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.
