A Note from CEO Jim Ayres
Hello friends and supporters,
Since arriving in Worcester in January, I have had the pleasure of getting to know many of you. You have shared your thoughts, ideas and aspirations for our region, and in doing so, have equipped me to be a better leader and ambassador for your Foundation.
Many of you have heard me say that Community Foundations are at our best when we are listening, learning organizations. And from this input, we then have a privilege and obligation to lead.
Our listening and learning is only just starting. Beginning this summer, we will embark on an in-depth, community-driven Strategic Planning process that will shape where we focus, how we prioritize and what future levers we employ to shape our region.
Please continue watching our newsletter for ways to provide input to this planning and to react to our new ideas and strategies as they emerge.
