The Council on Foundations has named The Copen Family Fund, the Flintridge Foundation, the Jacobs Family Foundation and the Rasmuson Foundation as the recipients of the inaugural Critical Impact Award for family foundations. This award recognizes projects funded by family foundations that have had a demonstrated impact on the common good and serve as models for others in philanthropy.
'This award was created for a very special reason - to recognize those who truly make a difference in their grantmaking while sharing with the public examples of how philanthropy seeks to enhance the common good,' said Steve Gunderson, president and CEO of the Council on Foundations. 'The Council on Foundations recognizes the Critical Impact Award winners for their innovative leadership and bold vision that enhances the common good through effective grantmaking. Twenty-first century philanthropy requires a focus on the impact of our grantmaking.'"
