Community Foundations are becoming an increasingly popular avenue for philanthropy in the United States. They may serve a particular city, as do the Pittsburgh Foundation and the Colorado Springs Community Trust, or an entire state, as do the Oregon Community Foundation and Hawaiian Foundation. They may be decades old or in the first stages of development. In an interview with Donna Grant, Executive Director of the Tucson (Arizona) Community Foundation, the many facets of this type of charitable institution are explored.
