As we approach the close of 2017 and the start of a new year, we grow with excitement…2018 marks the 25th Anniversary (1993-2018) of the DeKalb County Community Foundation! What started as an idea in 1992 has grown to over $50 million in assets through 25 years of donor generosity and endowment.
During 2018 we have several activities planned to celebrate, thank, and give. A few ideas in the works are:
- Celebration Grants – A small way of giving back and supporting the communities within DeKalb County
- “Stories of Generosity” – Hear from both young and ‘seasoned’ throughout DeKalb County about how they have given, received, and/or witnessed generosity during their lifetime.
- 25th Anniversary Light Show – Remember the Light Show in 2015? This one will be even better!
- 25th Anniversary Gala – A special evening set aside as we thank those who give generously through time, talent, and treasure.
- 25th Anniversary Video – From an idea in 1992 to a $50 million dollar Community Foundation 25 years later. See the highlights and milestones of our story.
And since 2017 has been a great year of planning, in 2018 we’ll announce our updated Strategic Plan (2018-2020) – shaping the Foundation’s roles and resources to best serve the community and fulfill our mission.
