Philanthropy Can Help Spotlight Needs


Foundation: Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta

Alicia Philipp, president of Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta who writes for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC), opines that it's time to face a harsh reality; that Atlanta has a crisis opportunity.

Philipp writes that not everyone in Atlanta has the same opportunity for growth, such as quality education, healthy food, caring neighbors, employment and business options.

To change this reality, Philipp advises to rethink policies, programs, and partnerships that are the most effective in helping communities thrive. She notes that it takes more than writing a check to an organization.

The Community Foundation, Philipp stressed, is focused on "inspiring philanthropy in support of programs and policies that ensure consistent pathways to opportunity in all communities across our region."

Philipp declares that what Atlanta needs most is to balance news-making, high-dollar gifts and milestone fundraising achievements with moments of giving and advocating for those who are left out to create a better life for all. Read the Entire Article
