Real community change requires the collective focus and effective coordination of multiple stakeholders, activities and resources. Central Florida Foundation spearheads this collaboration, enabling our community to lean into and solve the most critical challenges of today, and those on the horizon.
Launched as our community began grappling with the COVID-19 crisis, Central Florida Foundation hosts a online conversation about the most pressing issues facing our region. Leaders from various sectors are invited to participate, and various experts share current insights. The conversations are recorded for the entire community to listen.
Central Florida Foundation launched Table Talk in 2019 to give everyone in the region a voice in how our community operates today, and how it could evolve tomorrow. During this one-day, community-wide conversation, all residents of Central Florida are invited to gather and discuss our issues and opportunities. Our boldest ambitions and our biggest challenges. Our ideas for making our community better and more dynamic. Table Talk provides a way for all of us to be more civically engaged and committed to the community.
HOUSD addresses our current housing crisis by envisioning and investing in a future where everyone in Central Florida lives in a home they love.
UPLIFTED is a cross-sector coalition of community leaders working to build a better-educated Central Florida workforce.
Especially now, I thought it was important to contribute to finding solutions to the problems that have become more acute in 2020, while also providing resources for the longer-term challenges that our community faces. I see Thrive and its impact funds as a way for me to stand alongside other people and institutions looking for ways to improve the quality of life in Central Florida.- Jeff Jonasen
