Giving Insights is a forum series exploring the impact of Catholic philanthropy on our local community.

As a community foundation, we build relationships – a lot of them. And from those relationships, we glean community insights that help us to connect resources and needs in our community. We see these insights as community “assets,” and we wish to steward them well.

That’s why we created this forum series – to share these insights more broadly. We hope that Giving Insights informs and inspires further generosity and community impact.

Themed by CCF’s mission areas: spiritual, educational, and social, the forums examine critical needs in our community. Each forum showcases a moderator and panel of local and national experts with significant experience in funding, developing, and implementing solutions.

2021 Series: Now Virtual!

For 2021, CCF hosted two virtual Giving Insights forums via Zoom webinars. As in past series, the forums featured a moderated panel of experts discussing critical needs in our community, and ways our Catholic faith motivates us to be a part of the solutions.
