As part of its mission to build a culture of philanthropy in the region, Stanislaus Community Foundation has formed an Advisory Circle of local philanthropists who will engage with the organization in coming years to galvanize more local charitable investments. The Advisory Circle gathered for their first luncheon on Thursday, March 1, with presentations by local leaders on topics including crime and safety, regional economics, education and homelessness. In convening this group, Stanislaus Community Foundation strives to impact its larger vision of making Stanislaus County a community of choice where people live, work and thrive.
