For more than 70 years, the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation has endeavored to improve the quality of life in Linn County. Amid the challenges of 2020, that work was especially important.
It was a year of urgency, uncertainty, and tension, but also one of generosity, collaboration, and openness. It was another year helping donors support the organizations that are working to address some of our most pressing and complex challenges.
It is during times like these that the Community Foundation is especially vital. We cannot predict tomorrow’s needs and opportunities, but we can ensure we are here and ready to help. Our unrestricted funds, built by generations of people who care deeply for this community and its future, provided both flexibility and stability in responding to the unique challenges of 2020.
We are still learning, and we are still recovering, but we are a resilient community with good reason for optimism. Together, we can do more. Now more than ever, we must do more.
