Community Foundation of Broward Makes Top 100 List

8/5/2014
August 5, 2014

 
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – (August 5, 2014) – For the first time in its history, the Community Foundation of Broward has been named in the Top 100 Community Foundations by Assets Size, according to the 2014 Columbus Survey of Community Foundations. The Community Foundation of Broward made the list at number 94 with $153 million in total assets. 
 
“Though we all agree size doesn’t matter, this growth reflects the community’s endorsement of the work we do together and its relevance to our Fundholders, and the community,” said Linda Carter, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Broward. “Making our debut at number 94 is all the more gratifying in a sector that is a 100 years old and comprised of 1,700 community foundations worldwide.”  
 
To be on the list, last year’s threshold of the Top 100 Community Foundations list was at $123 million, while the 2014 list threshold rose to $145 million. The increase in assets was accompanied by a record distribution of $7 million in grants by the Community Foundation of Broward back to the community.  
 
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Community Foundation of Broward, and the 100th anniversary of the community foundation movement that has seen community foundations around the world celebrate the impact of a century of community philanthropy.
