From our community volunteers

I am excited to make a difference and feel confident to do so!

Alumni, Inaugural Class of 2015

“We are proud to be part of the Vision 2040 effort here at the community foundation because it aligns with our core mission to engage people, connect resources and build community. It was an easy choice to invest not only financial resources to support Vision 2040 but also to lend significat board and staff time to help drive this effort forward. It's transforming our communities for the future our residents dream about-using their ideas and energies to make good things happen organically in real time and for years to come-and we want to be part of making that possible!”

Sara Carlson, Willmar Area Community Foundation

I made connections with community members and found many common visions.  I have begun to get more active in the community due to the connections.
