TCF Hosts Community Foundation Panel Discussion

On the morning of February 9, 2018, The Community Foundation and UCR Center for Social Innovation co-hosted Building an Ecosystem for Civic Transformation. The event began with a Community Foundation panel discussion and was followed by the launch of the Center for Social Innovation.

Community Foundation Panel DiscussionModerating the conversation was Karthick Ramakrishnan, Director of the UCR Center for Social Innovation. Panelists included community foundation leaders: Dr. Paulette Brown-Hinds, The Community Foundation; Shelley Hoss, Orange County Community Foundation; and Ashley Swearengin, Central Valley Community Foundation. Remarks were given afterwards by Fred Ali, President and CEO of Weingart Foundation, and Don Howard, President and CEO of The James Irvine Foundation.

The discussion focused on the kinds of changes and investments needed to boost collective impact and civic transformation in our Inland regions. “We need to grow collaborative efforts in the community. We have a legacy of volunteerism and generosity in this region that we can utilize,” said Paulette. “Challenge yourself and others to work on creating change through collaborative efforts. Civic entrepreneurs need to organize themselves and then bring together traditional players to create change,” added Ashley.  On the role of community foundations, all panelists agreed that foundations would play a key role as convener and connector in creating civic transformation in the Inland region and nonprofit sector.
