2017 National Community Foundations Forum
NCFF17 explored the SMIRF capital of Community Foundations; that is the premise that meaningful change is achieved when Community Foundations leverage all forms of their capital; Social, Moral, Intellectual, Reputational as well as Financial; building networks and connections to foster a sense of belonging, reflecting and protecting our community’s values, leveraging our deep local knowledge, and using our positions as trusted local leaders to lift-up, empower and enfranchise community organisations or citizen groups that are often over-looked and disadvantaged.

New Resource – What is a Community Foundation?
ACP has developed a new resource. The ‘What is a Community Foundation?’ booklet provides an overview of community foundations, how they work and the benefits they deliver to donors, funding recipients and the community.

Vital Signs reports use accessible data to take the pulse of community and inspire civic engagement, providing focus for public debate in our communities and around the world. They are used by community foundations, residents, businesses, local organisations, universities and colleges, and government leaders to take action and direct resources where they will have the greatest impact.
