Congratulations to The Cleveland Foundation
The Cleveland Foundation kicked off the year-long celebration of its 100th birthday on January 2, announcing an array of special activities and gifts to mark this historical event. Chief among the planned celebrations is a series of monthly gifts to the community, all of which will highlight community assets the foundations has helped to build through the years. The first such gift: a day of free rides on the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, which the foundation first supported in 1981. I can’t wait to see what other gifts will be made: stay tuned for announcements, to be made on the second of each month throughout the year.
You can read much more about the planned activities – including addresses by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and General Colin Powell – online. And be sure to check out the new website that shows the growth and development of the foundation since its founding, complete with period photos and key events presented a decade at a time. Its searchable, interactive timeline is packed with interesting facts, stories and videos.
Happy birthday to you, Cleveland Foundation!
