In this week’s Community Foundation of the Ozarks News-Leader column, we discuss our network of 44 affiliates, which hold community assets totaling nearly $70 million. These foundations, peppered across southern Missouri from Ste. Genevieve to Joplin, assembled last week at the annual Affiliate Conference. The meeting is a way to celebrate the good works of these volunteer leaders, and give them tools that will help them in their missions.
The CFO’s column runs weekly in rotation with other organizations on the News-Leader’s Community page, which is published daily. We appreciate this opportunity to share our work with News-Leader readers across the region.
