Fall Regional Meetings on Rural Schools Partnership Continue

CFO is hosting regional meetings in your area this fall. We invite affiliate community foundation board members and school representatives to attend to learn more about the Rural Schools Partnership, which focuses on developing alternative resources for schools, promoting collaboration and supporting place-based education strategies. Included in our discussion will be the upcoming grant rounds associated with this initiative. We will also continue the planned giving/Legacy Society discussion. This is a great opportunity for schools, school foundations, regional affiliate community foundations, and other nonprofit organizations to ask questions and learn more about the Rural Schools Partnership.

The dates and locations for the regional meetings are listed below. Lunch will be served.

If you cannot attend one of these meetings, please make plans to participate in the online Regional Meeting seminar being held October 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Information on joining this e-meeting can be found here.
