New Partnership!

The Center for Rural Entrepreneurship and Aspen Institute Community Strategies Group have created a partnership to advance Community Development Philanthropy (CDP), with the goal of more community and regional foundations practicing CDP with excellence and success. Through decades of experience on the ground with foundations, we find that those that succeed -- in small or large ways -- at Community Development Philanthropy have used a similar process. We’ve extracted this into a set of Design Elements for a CDP Effort. Together, we have tools, resources and services to help, including a monthly newsletter to which you can subscribe by clicking on the red "Get the Newsletter" tab below.
