Community Foundations Take The Lead:
Promising Approaches to Building Inclusive and Equitable Communities

A message from Cindy Sesler Ballard, Executive Director, CFLeads: Equity and inclusion are bedrock American values; they form the core of what makes America the "land of opportunity." CFLeads is pleased to bring you this new publication that tells the stories of seven community foundations that are safeguarding those values while strengthening the fabric of their communities. Their concern extends to new immigrants as well as historically marginalized groups. Each story underscores the importance of data in making progress on issues that are emotion-laden and poorly understood. It is our hope that these stories suggest new avenues of inquiry, bring new tools to your attention, alert you to colleagues you can call upon, and inspire you to action. CFLeads is grateful to the Ford Foundation for underwriting this publication
