Leadership and Teamwork: They're Not Just for Basketball

March Madness. Such a glorious time of year for college basketball fans!

Did your team make the cut? How far will it go? Ah, the agony and ecstasy of it all!!

What does it take to create a good team? Hard work. Dedication. Leadership and

commitment to the greater good. A sense of community, whatever that community may be.

Throughout Indiana, our nation, and now around the world, community foundations are

leading community teams to great success – strengthening communities and positively impacting the arts, education, recreation, social services, historic preservation, and numerous other quality of life opportunities for people who care about the greater good. In some communities, they are spearheading specific initiatives to address unique needs or opportunities.

Your Community Foundation of White County is a team composed of hundreds of

donors and visionaries committed to strengthening White County by sharing their time, talents, and treasure.

Some members of the team play key roles in our game: Founding Contributors of

endowment funds within the Foundation, whose gifts provide both inspiration and on-going

grants; and CFWC Governing Council members who lead our efforts in the community. All of

these people are backed up by other team members: hundreds of individual donors to our various endowment funds, volunteer committee members, grant and scholarship recipients who share their stories, and everyone who share news of our community efforts.

What are the rewards? What is the measure of our success? There’s no championship

trophy, but the rewards are great.

Last year, over $304,000 in grants were distributed from the various funds administered

by your Foundation. These grants, scholarships, and gifts to charitable organizations in your

community help make White County a better place in which to live and work.

Our team succeeds only because everyone is working toward a single goal: the

betterment of our community. The week of April 4, we’ll be hosting a series of Community

Conversations and invite you to join us. Share a couple hours of your time to help us envision

the future of our community. Yes, your voice and talents matter! Please call the Foundation

office to make your reservation (574-583-6911).

It comes around once a year – that day when we give special thought to the role our mother has played in our lives. And every year, we wonder what gift we can give that could even begin to express the
