About the Partnership

A new initiative at Coastal Community Foundation, the Community Partnership Program will harness the power of philanthropy to make a significant, long-term difference in our region by inspiring individual donors and corporate leaders to get engaged with our community by building a comprehensive Civic Engagement Agenda, an organizing and action tool which will chart a course for both short and long-term impact on key issues facing our region.

The Agenda will consist of a community indicators report and community strategy document with clearly identified objectives. Through the combination of the Community Partnership Program and the Civic Engagement Agenda, we will have the opportunity to build the unrestricted resources necessary to seed, scale or sustain best-practice programs, services and initiatives in our region.


With the support of the Community Partnership Program, we will drive impact together through the Civic Engagement Agenda. This agenda will focus our grantmaking and community leadership on the most important issues facing our service area, providing capacity for the Foundation to:

  • Convene stakeholders and focus efforts on issues that matter to our donors and community
  • Provide research, data and thought leadership
  • Build action-oriented coalitions of people and organizations
  • Provide project-based and time-limited leadership on select initiatives
  • Develop and support funding alliances to leverage resources
