Defining Impactful Community Philanthropy

As event season fills our calendars and nonprofits throughout the community highlight the people and programs making a difference, the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona invites community members to reflect on their personal philanthropic goals and what impact looks like to them.

“Impactful Community Philanthropy” is one of three central themes in CFSA’s new strategic plan, alongside “Bold Aspirations for Our Community” and “A Vital Nonprofit Sector.”

In the context of our new plan, this idea includes advancing social justice philanthropy, embracing trust-based philanthropy, expanding donor services, modernizing systems, and other critical aspects of our work at CFSA.

For a more personal perspective, we asked CFSA trustees and staff to share what “impactful philanthropy” means to them. Please watch the video below to hear directly from some of those individuals.
