2015 — In 2015, the final year of our fourth three-year phase of work, our members spent much time reflecting on our efforts and assessing how best to build on our past successes to advance both Growth & Opportunity in the next three years of our work and beyond. The overarching conclusions were: 1) Philanthropy’s role in transforming our region’s economy is more important than ever; and 2) we are all in this together. Indeed, “We are better together” became our mantra. Our 2015 annual report celebrates our Fund’s know-how, honed over the last decade-plus of our collaboration. This know-how gives us a strategic advantage in our work going forward.
