Gratitude and Connection

Posted Feb 21, 2020 12:25 PM
The 501 Commons staff and board members are inspired every day by the creativity and commitment we see in the people and organizations we serve.

We want to express our thanks to the 653 organizations that used 501 Commons' services last year and the 1,542 organizations that participated in GiveBIG. In addition, more than 1,000 people participated in Board Training workshops, Staff Development Coalition sessions, 501 Talks Tech, ED Forums, fundraising training seminars, and other learning opportunities.

We are able to offer more than 30 services, some for free or at a reduced cost, because of the support we receive from individuals, foundations, and companies. We are particularly grateful to foundations providing the gold standard of funding – general operating funds – as this support allows us to be nimble, respond to emerging needs, and take on new challenges. This was certainly the case when we assumed GiveBIG last year. Taking on GiveBIG was a very big lift and we could not have done it without our partners; Encore Media Group, the Ostara Group, and CiviCore.

We count ourselves as very blessed to work in partnership with so many people. We benefit from having access to the amazing breadth of expertise present in our 500+ person Executive Service Corps. We appreciate our 115 Resource Directory partners, the trainers listing their offerings in Learning Connections, and the pro bono experts who provide our board trainings.

We are grateful for our connection with YOU. Don't hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you.
