We anticipate length being dictated by our goals for the Impact Report, which will span from the start of the pandemic through summer '21 and demonstrate the value and impact of the community foundation - both ongoing programs and pandemic-specific responses - while ensuring an obvious and powerful through line of community, connection, and convening. We'd like a "lite" hard copy version for older donors + a more expansive digital version.
CACF hasn't released an annual/impact report in more than two years - this project will engage our donors, fund holders, and grantees so they understand the breadth and impact of the foundation's work AND how we continue evolving through our equity journey and the related effects on our program design and grant making. We are also currently without a dedicated communications person, so your support will provide critical capacity and expertise.
To improve the quality of life for those living and working in the city of Charlottesville and the counties of Albemarle, Buckingham, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Nelson, and Orange. We believe that strong community relationships, collaborative problem-solving, and broad engagement are powerful forces for change. We are committed to centering the experiences of those who are most impacted by problems and to widening access to our resources (both monetary and non-monetary) and ensuring they are equally distributed.

By virtue of sharing a place, we are all interconnected.
In order to thrive, we must value and invest in one another.
Systems and structures intentionally advantage some and disadvantage others.
In order to have lasting impact, we must see people and communities in their full contexts.
Because people matter, history, race, and power matter.
