MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT/CEO

Dr. Jonathan Lorenzo Yorba, PhD -  President/CEO
The Community Foundation is celebrating philanthropy – then, now, and in the future! This year marks the 75thanniversary of the foundation which was started by visionary philanthropists Charles and Clara Brouse as a scholarship distribution committee in Riverside in 1941, and has since grown to be the oldest and largest community foundation serving Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. We’re celebrating with an exciting gala on October 15, 2016 and hope each of you will join us at the Riverside Convention Center for this momentous occasion.  The Community Foundation will be honoring Tribal Alliance of Sovereign Indian Nations and Inland Southern California Tribes. All net gala proceeds will be placed into our Youth Grantmakers Endowment, started by Riverside Construction, Inc.  Our newest board member, Kathleen Sawa is a former Youth Grantmaker, and with her appointment to the foundation board we have come full circle from training her to understand the nonprofit sector and the ineffable power philanthropy has on communities through grantmaking, to being a policymaker and a member of the governing body of the foundation.

This year also marks the birth of the Temecula Valley Endowment Program, a new collaboration between Michelle’s Place Breast Cancer Resource Center, Oak Grove Center for Education Treatment & the Arts, and Santa Rosa Plateau Nature Education Foundation.  Since the sustainability of nonprofit organizations is critical, this pilot program will help ensure the longevity of the vital works these organizations provide in the Temecula Valley.

And we have added new staff who will help us continue working with our fund holders to ensure that The Community Foundation is positioned not just for another 75 years but into perpetuity.
