We're living in uncertain times, filled with mounting anxieties about the potential effect of the economic crisis on nonprofit organizations and the communities they serve. But, as the holidays approach, we can gain some perspective as we consider the many gifts given and received that help to build a better world every day.
In this spirit, it seems like the appropriate moment to ask for your submissions to a new Foundation Center feature called Grants That Make a Difference. We invite nonprofits, foundations, individual grantseekers, and anyone involved in or touched by philanthropy to share your experiences about the impact of grants or other support you gave or received. What effect did the grant have? Who did it help? What positive change did it create? Why was it effective? Tell us your stories and help us tell the story of philanthropy. We will feature selected stories regularly at various areas of our web site. Submit your story today!
