Over 200 community members gathered for Celebration of Community, an event hosted by the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, on Thursday, November 13, 2014 from 4 – 6 p.m. at Veterans Memorial to celebrate and recognize the work of nonprofits and the impact of grantmaking in our community.

“Nonprofit organizations play a critical role in this community,” said Les Garner, President & CEO of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.  “We are continually inspired by the programs and services of nonprofits that make our community a better place for all of us to live.  They create opportunities to enjoy arts and cultural experiences, expand our educational horizons, preserve our environment, and improve our health and well-being.  We are proud to be their partner in impacting the lives of our fellow citizens.”

The program featured stories of several recent grant-funded projects from Theatre Cedar Rapids, Foundation 2 and Neighborhood Transportation Services.

Foundation 2 was pleased to be featured at this great event.  You can watch the video that the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation created about Foundation 2 here.
