Foundation to Launch a Year of 25th Anniversary Programming
Community Memorial Foundation turns 25 in 2020, and we plan to honor our anniversary by celebrating the strength and resilience of our grantee partners. Through an enhanced capacity building program and special grant opportunity, we aim to “turn silver into gold” by strengthening organizational sustainability and increasing positive health outcomes for the next 25 years. Foundation leaders will share our anniversary plan with grantees, funders and community stakeholders at a kickoff luncheon on January 24, 2020.
Welcome, New Board Members
The Foundation proudly announces the addition of three new members to its Board of Directors: Dr. Bonny Chen, Dr. Kris Lonsway, and Dr. Keith Suchy.
