At its bi-annual Scholar Award Dinner, New Futures welcomed and celebrated 28 young people joining its program as Scholars. Among this inspiring group were 24 pursuing a certificate or associates degree and four second-time Scholars pursuing a bachelor’s degree in IT/Cybersecurity, Construction & Trades, Health Sciences, Hospitality & Culinary Arts, Public Service, and Education fields. Grants and Communications Officer Beth Hess appreciated the opportunity to learn about the journeys and aspirations of this dedicated group of Scholars following their dreams.
#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.
