Community Foundation Week continues with celebration Thursday, November 14th

It’s Community Foundation Week. Friday, November 15th, is National Philanthropy Day. Celebrating 15 years, the Galesburg Community Foundation is raising awareness by telling about the work they are doing. To date, the GCF has reinvested $8 million in the community and region in the form of grants. “This is a special time every year,” Executive Director Josh Gibb said. “We join with colleagues all across the country to really celebrate community foundations and what we are doing in our communities of interest and our regions of interest. The (Galesburg) Community Foundation has had a couple of celebrations for Community Foundation Week (and) Community Foundation Month already, and this Thursday (November 14th) we’re going to have pizza at Jimmy’s.” Those with a passion can learn how the GCF provides the opportunity, leadership, and tools needed by philanthropic organizations to expand, enhance, and sustain their ability to advance the common good. Thursday, November 14th from 5 pm to 8 pm at Jimmy’s you can come, learn more, and celebrate all the GCF has accomplished in 15 years.
