40th Anniversary Celebration Quiz

With new questions added each month, our quiz aims to trigger fond memories, showcase the BOLD impact of local philanthropy and shine a light on where the Community Foundation is headed.

New Question & Answer

Who was the Community Foundation’s first Board Chair?

Jim Blosser, a prominent attorney and dedicated community leader, served as our first Board Chair from 1984 to 1987. In the post that back then was known as Board President, Jim played a pivotal role in outreach efforts to raise awareness about the exciting potential of the new Foundation. His leadership set the tone for the 26 Board Chairs who have followed during our 40-year history. We lost Jim in 2023, but the legacy of his leadership lives on in the Community Foundation he helped create. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT JIM’S LEADERSHIP.

When did we launch the Professional Advisors Council?

Serving as a go-to resource for professional advisors with charitably minded clients has been a top priority for the Community Foundation ever since our founding in 1984. We took our collaborations to the next level when we created the Professional Advisors Council in 2003. Membership on the PAC is one of the ways we say “thank you” to advisors who collaborate with us to help their clients establish charitable funds at the Community Foundation.
