Community West Foundation announces the release of their 2018 Annual Report. The theme chosen is from the words of poet Kahlil Gibran, “Work is Love Made Visible” and captures the sheer joy and privilege the Board and staff feel about the work they engage in at Community West Foundation. These words are certainly alive, active and abundant in the Foundation’s activities.
The Foundation shared $2.1 million in grants that helped 53 local organizations providing for the most basic of necessities helping our neighbors who hunger for food, shelter, health care, emergency assistance and love. The impact can be seen and felt throughout the city. An additional $1.5 million supported the valuable work of Fairview and Lutheran Hospitals. There is no greater gift to our community than to restore the spirit of hope to those who need it most.
Community West received great support and opportunities from a wonderful community of people. The Foundation raised $4.2 million, a reminder that people value the Foundation’s mission and believe in their work. It is clear that donors are impressive in their loyalty, longevity and love for this wonderful west-side Foundation.
The Foundation’s important work is strengthened by the efforts of its Board, donors, partners and grantees all helping to address the needs of our community. We are all so fortunate to live in a community where wonderful individuals and organizations embrace the idea of philanthropy.
