“The economic realities we face mean two things: that it is critically important to increase the level of volunteering in our nation, and that it is also critically important to operate as cost-effectively as possible. As funders, we must find more and better ways to work together to support the nonprofit infrastructure as well as the more than 64.5 million Americans who volunteer each year through formal organizations. The resources of each sector must be leveraged the most effective way to broaden and strengthen the traditions of volunteering and civic engagement.”

“Jane recognized CNE’s commitment to strengthen the capacity of nonprofits to leverage volunteers and their skills to address community needs. Subsequently, the foundation invested funding, resources and an endorsement to carry forward this legacy of work. We are overwhelmed with the possibility this represents for our organization and more importantly, all of the lives that will be positively impacted through this initiative. It is our honor to continue the foundation’s work for years to come as we help build stronger communities across Southern Colorado.”
