Invest in the next philanthropists

Kristi Knous | President, Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines

The Idea: While charitable giving remains a wonderful part of our community’s culture, to continue successfully building a thriving, engaging and attractive region, we cannot rely on a single philanthropist, family or company to solely fund our many needs. We will ALL need to come together as individuals, companies, nonprofits and government to create and invest in cross-sector plans and solutions that will make our community better together. As we look toward the future we must be purposeful in developing the next generation of leaders and givers who can link arms to make the big dreams come true, to strategically address our most pressing challenges and to continue to make our amazing Greater Des Moines even greater. >
