Impact and Programs
We led or engaged in over 250 meetings, communications or presentations with over 50,000 constituents and reached a public circulation of over 1.3 million in various print media reports of ECF programs. This included robust public participation in programs we lead for the community--Connecting With Kids, Edina Challenge, Edina Dialogue and the 4th of July Parade, as well as a growth in our community service as a charitable giving partner to over 50 other nonprofit organizations and programs. The impact of all this led the Edina Magazine in March 2016 to select ECF as The Best Community Organization, noting that, "If you care about it, it is likely the Edina Community Foundation supports it."
We will SERVE the community by leading the Edina Challenge, providing philanthropic leadership and acting as a charitable partner and delivering valued services. We will STRENGTHEN the community by developing community programs including Edina Dialogue, Edina Reads and the CEO Roundtable. We will CELEBRATE our community by creating and implementing community events such as the 4th of July Parade and by supporting public art.
