Our Communities of Northwest Stokes Foundation announces the opening of our first ever Annual Giving Campaign. In the past, we have asked you for your sponsorship of our annual Fall event. We appreciate your past generosity. This change means that now
when you give, you’re helping to make everything we do throughout the year possible. Born during an area wide effort to save the Francisco School almost 10 years ago, Our Communities Initiative and its 501(c)3 Foundation forged a path to help Francisco and
the surrounding communities thrive by producing, supporting, and funding dozens of community projects and events. During the COVID 19 years, we planned for an even more diversified approach to community building. With your help, we are now ready to move forward in new directions. Your donation will support the following:
   exploring trail and playground development
   diversifying event presentations
   building new collaborative ventures
   continuing to enhance our successful existing                 projects such as our grants program,
  classes, welcome wagon, and neighbor to neighbor      
We hope you will join us in these efforts and contribute to our campaign by returning the
donation form below or giving online. Levels of giving and recognition are listed on the
