The last few weeks have shown that Broward’s “new normal” must mean more than just surviving a pandemic. As life as we know it changes because of the coronavirus, our community must also change to overcome the disease of racism.
The Community Foundation of Broward will not sit on the sidelines during these critical times. We know many residents are suffering from a pandemic that turned their world upside down. And we hear the voices of those saying enough is enough as they strive to combat inequality and injustice.
Solutions to these far-reaching challenges won’t happen overnight and all sectors of our community must play a part. We know local philanthropy has the power to create real change. So, we are reaching out to residents, our Fundholders, nonprofits and other community leaders. We are doing exhaustive research. We are taking part in local and national conversations. We are building new collaborations. Most importantly, we are listening and learning.
The challenges before us are unprecedented, but the Community Foundation is no stranger to working where it’s hard. For the past 36 years we have helped bridge economic, health, education and wealth gaps in our community. Now more than ever, we are committed to helping shape a bold way forward for Broward.
