Mott showcases community foundations to commemorate the field’s centennial celebrations


By MAGGIE JARUZEL POTTER

In celebration of the community foundation field's 100th anniversary in 2014, the Mott Foundation is continuing its series of articles that examine various facets of the field's growth and development. The articles report on what is occurring in Mott's major geographic focus areas — Central/Eastern Europe and Russia, South Africa and the U.S. — and provide information about how the field is expanding globally. The articles, in reverse chronological order, also highlight the work of Mott's grantees in these regions. Below is a complete listing of articles about community foundation initiatives.
