We spoke with: Brooklyn Community Foundation, Evanston Community Foundation, Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville, and the Placer Community Foundation. We found that our foundation is most similar to Placer Community Foundation in terms of age, community median income, assets, and donor advised funds. However, our operating budget is more similar to Evanston Community Foundation. We have highlighted programs below that each foundation excels in.
