About This Event

The annual GenerousLee Reception cultivates community pride and generates a spirit of giving by recognizing fund holders, donors, and legacy society members who have generously supported The Community Foundation.

Proceeds raised at the fundraising event benefit The Community Foundation’s Nonprofit Education Fund, a program that gives local nonprofit organization’s staff, board of directors and volunteers the opportunity to attend educational seminars that will help them learn how to raise even more to benefit the community.

Educational seminars include:

  • Finance, HR, Operations & Management
  • Program Development
  • Fundraising Courses
  • Volunteer Management
  • Leadership Development
