Dear	Donors,	Volunteers,	and	Friends:

T  he mission of the Community Foundation of
   Western Massachusetts, in brief, is to improve
the quality of life for people in the areas we serve.
This is primarily done through our grant making and
scholarship programs. On average, we contribute in
the area of $7-8 M each year to people and programs.
To do this, we depend on special people – our donors;
people who establish funds and scholarships or
donate directly to the Foundation.
     We are stewards for the assets of our donors
and use a competitive process for distribution of                      We	are	stewards	for	the	assets	of	our	donors

                           which among other things, provides young people with a safe place to find their
                        voice. Kasia Novak is the current Vice-President of their Board of Directors, but first
                        she was a mom who was very impressed with the impact that the Drama Studio had on
Community	              her own daughter.
                             In December of 2010, Kasia met with the Community Foundation staff to discuss
                        her personal philanthropic goals, one of which was to help the Drama Studio find some
staff	suggested	        new donors.
Kasia	use	her	               “I continued to see the same group of people that we were always going to for
Donor	Advised	          fundraising. We were looking for a way to expand the pool of donors,” explained Kasia.
                             Community Foundation staff suggested Kasia use her Donor Advised Fund to
Fund	to	create	a	
                        create a challenge grant. New and increased gifts made to the Drama Studio during the
challenge	grant.        challenge period would be matched by the Novak Family Charitable Fund, up to $5,000.
                             The challenge was more successful than Kasia and the Drama Studio had even
                        hoped. They exceeded their goal, with more than $6,500 in new and increased gifts.
                        More importantly, relationships with new donors are growing and the Drama Studio is
                        seeing a new culture of giving among their supporters, in large part because of Kasia’s
                        challenge to the community and her personal endorsement of the organization.

8   COMMUNITY FOUNDATION of Western Massachusetts
Community    In	2010,	the	Community	Foundation	stepped	up	its	role	as	a	convener	
             through	its	community	leadership	work.	The	communities	we	serve	
Leadership   have	both	tremendous	resources	to	be	leveraged	and	challenges		
             to	meet.	The	Community	Foundation	committed		to	bringing	together	
             stakeholders	to	learn	more	about		issues	facing	our	region	and	creative	
             ways	to	address	those	issues.	Among	the	successful	strategies		
             employed	in	2010	were	the	Community	Conversations	forums,	City	to	
             City	Greater	Springfield,	and	the	Leadership	Pioneer	Valley	initiative.

             Community	Conversations
             In June 2010, the Community Foundation launched Community	Conversations:	
             Exploring	Vital	Issues	for	our	Region. To date the Community Foundation has
             convened four such conversations informing stakeholders about key issues
             for our community and getting people talking and thinking about solutions.
             This initiative kicked off with a conversation about drop out prevention,
             followed by meetings about urban renewal, the creative economy, and
             social entrepreneurship.

             City	to	City
             A group of Springfield leaders
             representing business, education,
             philanthropy, planning, workforce
             development and industry
             embarked on its first City	to	City	
             Greater	Springfield trip, visiting
             Winston Salem and Greensboro,
             North Carolina in November and
             December of 2010. The City to City initiative was organized and facilitated by
             the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts and the Federal Reserve
             Bank of Boston, with the goal of learning from our peers in other cities about
             ways to support economic and social growth.

             Leadership	Pioneer	Valley
             The Community Foundation has collaborated with the Pioneer Valley Planning
             Commission and the Economic Development Council to create a program
             designed to identify, develop and connect diverse leaders in the Pioneer
             Valley. The program is modeled after a number of other successful programs
             at the local, regional and national levels and hopes to strengthen the region by
             educating and empowering emerging leaders.
