Story of Fund
This fund was created by donors inspired by a matching grant offered by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. These first donors to the fund, and many others in the years since, value Centre Foundation's role as leader of community philanthropy. Through their support of the operations of the foundation, these donors are able to touch every organization that the foundation benefits.
How Does it Help?
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has.
- Margaret Mead
