Community Foundation Bids Farewell to Two Board Members

At the June Board Meeting, Todd Stock and Tony Smith were recognized for their service to the Community Foundation Board of Directors.  Both Todd & Tony have served three consecutive, three year terms for a total of nine years of dedication.
Todd is past Board Chair and along with the other 11 board members, has assisted in many financial, policy and procedural decisions as well as day to day operational matters.
Tony has served as Chair of the Grants Committee and has been instrumental in the awarding of grants to recipients throughout the county.
"We greatly appreciate Todd and Tony's dedication to not only the Foundation, but to the community that we impact.  We wish them both the very best" said Dr. Oren Skinner, President and CEO
 Community Foundation Receives
Grant for Internship Pilot Program
The Steuben County Community Foundation is involved with a new pilot program for Community Foundations funded by a Lilly Endowment grant under the GIFT (Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow) Initiative.  The Endowment's program aims to address two key objectives: to help build healthy Indiana community foundations and to provide Indiana college students with real-life work experiences. 
Our Foundation is collaborating with Trine University to create and sustain a Media, Marketing and Communications Internship Program. This program will increase the Foundation's ability to interact with our community using contemporary tools and strategies, ultimately increasing individual and organizational engagement in the Foundation's philanthropic activities.
The program will be divided into six segments; one each semester of the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school years, and one during each summer.  The objectives of the project will be 1) Foundation staff will increase their knowledge and skills of utilizing contemporary media, marketing and communications strategies, 2) SCCF will increase its ability to interact and connect with donors, charities and community projects, 3) Trine University students, staff and faculty will increase their level of engagement with the Steuben County philanthropic sector, and 4) Trine University students will demonstrate their professional skills in the workplace.
The SCCF staff in conjunction with Trine University staff will be identifying candidates for the position (s).  The selection process will begin in July, with the interns beginning in September of this year.
