Five Questions With...
Q1) Can you tell us what the current priorities of the 3 Rivers Community Foundation are?
3RCF is focused on creating a vibrant community of donors to support Benton and Franklin counties. We are raising awareness of the opportunity philanthropy offers to leave a lasting charitable legacy. We also continue to stay connected to our nonprofit community so we can be a resource for our donors and for our board when making grant decisions.
Q2) How does the Foundation generally use community data in its decision-making?
Community data is vital to 3RCF in our grantmaking process. We are typically reviewing 50 or more grant applications in a cycle, and always have more requests than we are able to fund. While we also use interviews to understand the human story in each of our grant requests, being able to rely on data is key to making difficult decisions between worthy applicants.
