At the Community Foundation, we convene our community partners to solve community challenges in unique and creative ways. First, a community partner comes to us with a complex problem they’re working to solve. Next, we identify key stakeholders and build a unique collaboration. Finally, we solve complex problems with strong partnerships.
If you’re encountering a complex community problem that requires collaboration across sectors, schedule a call today, and let’s build a stronger, more resilient Marion County.
City of Ocala
The Community Foundation, and particularly the grant services department, has been instrumental in helping the City of Ocala implement our vision for the City. From helping to secure grant funding for the Mary Sue Rich Community Center to their work with the Community Paramedicine program to assisting with the Community Development Block Grant process, we are looking forward to continued partnership with the Foundation. Together, the City and the Foundation are working to build a stronger community!
“We didn’t understand the impact the Community Foundation can have on a group like ours who are passionate about a mission without the ability to manage the mechanics. We wanted to do good, raise funds and give back, and through the Foundation, we can focus on that without worrying about the administration of making that happen.“
We’re so grateful for the work the Community Foundation does for us. It shows through Give4Marion, professional development resources and other services; not only in helping us raise money, but by helping minimize the economic impact of COVID-19 for our entire community.
“All the Foundation’s efforts align closely to our and our Adam Hanson Better Communities Fund goals. We are honored to be in the inaugural class of The Pillar Society and to support their many important community initiatives.“
