The Juneau Community Foundation would like to express our sincere appreciation to all of our local donors in 2009. Your caring and compassion for local projects and nonprofits have made this past year our best so far.
Here are some of the specific things we have accomplished together in 2009:
Three new significant Donor Advised funds benefiting local causes.
Two new Field of Interest funds: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome projects and the Juneau Memorial Fund.
Three new Organizational Endowments: Methodist Camp, Jazz and Classics, and Trail Mix.
Help in increasing the Juneau Community Endowment Fund to $150,000.
Continued success of the new Diamond Park Field House.
Growth and success of the Youth Advisory Committee - our philanthropy training program in the high schools.
Direct contributions by JCF donors and funds of approximately $85,000 to local nonprofits.
Creation of a new long term investment fund to supplement our existing short term investment fund.
Also, special thanks to our Executive Director, Ken Leghorn and to Andrea Watts for their continued dedicated service to JCF.
