Quad Cities Community Foundation’s Sherry Ristau, CEO and Vice President, and Anne Calder, Vice President of Development, visit with Brittany Price about the re-branding of the Quad Cities Community Foundation and what that means for Quad Citizens.
As the Community Foundation approaches their 55th year of transforming the region through the generosity of donors, the newly-named Quad Cities Community Foundation has grown significantly and aspired to be the most trusted resource for community generosity in the Quad Cities, and beyond. Formerly known as the Davenport Area Foundation, and then the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend, representatives from the Quad Cities Community Foundation want you to know “Our new name is a sincere and powerful reminder that we are here to serve this community… to help donors in our region to make gifts that will leave an impact on nonprofits—and the people who power them—today, and forever.”
We get a glimpse of this with the foundation’s new tagline “generosity always lives here”. The Quad Cities Community Foundation does this by partnering with community members who want to start funds and make gifts that will support the charities they care about well into the future. Through grantmaking, they support nonprofits with their ability to realize their mission through capacity building resources, operational support, and more.
