Community Change Makers:
The Leadership Roles of Community Foundations

(2004) by Chapin Hall and the Program on Philanthropy and Community Change.

Based on a series of meetings organized by the Coalition of Community Foundations for Youth with a group of senior, community foundation leaders, this publication discusses the ways in which community foundations' unique access, agility, credibility, and local knowledge places them in a pivotal position at the center of community life and describes how community foundations throughout the US are using their position to develop and expand their leadership roles.
