Philanthropy’s Ethical Leadership in Economic Crisis Public Breakfast

August 25, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

National Leaders in Philanthropy & Community Revitalization coming to Wheeling, WV

Philanthropy’s Ethical Leadership during Economic Crisis

As part of Philanthropy West Virginia’s commitment in their new organizational focus, “Philanthropy WV is focusing on how foundations, corporate giving, and individual philanthropists can take meaningful action that contributes to thriving communities in the Mountain State”, shares Paul D. Daugherty, president and CEO of the statewide leadership organization for philanthropy.  He adds, “We are bringing our friends in the Kresge Foundation to share, collaborative, and take action around their lessons learned with community revitalization from Detroit to Nashville to cities comparable to West Virginia.”

The Kresge Foundation has worked in building effective partnerships and investments amongst business, nonprofits, and government to revitalize neighborhoods and communities. In this time of economic challenge for parts of our state, the program provides an opportunity to learn how West Virginia leaders can collaborate and rebuild our economy and community cores.  Last fall, two West Virginia cities received special grants from the Kresge Foundation, including the Wheeling Heritage Area for its capital absorption strategy for business development and the Charleston’s West Invest Collaborative for neighborhood revitalization.

We are very excited to yet again, bring Kresge Foundation to West Virginia.  Two years ago, we brought Mr. Rapson to Charleston, WV.  This year, we are bringing two bright leaders to Wheeling; Wendy Lewis Jackson, Managing Director and Chantel Rush, Program Officer.  This program is to inspire, energize, and educate West Virginia’s foundation, nonprofit, education, private, public/government, and other sectors on the Kresge Foundation’s ethical leadership during Michigan’s economic crisis to revitalize the city, community and state.  This breakfast will highlight Kresge’s successes and failures on revitalizing communities and expanding opportunities in cities.
