The George Gund Foundation’s first on-line, interactive annual report, which like its print predecessors features a photo essay focused on a priority issue for the Foundation, is now available on the Foundation’s website.
Sage Sohier’s photographs provide a glimpse into the lives of preschoolers who benefit from the work of Invest in Children, Cuyahoga County’s public-private early childhood partnership. The 2008 annual report also features letters from the Foundationís board president and executive director addressing the Foundationís response to the nation’s financial downturn-a response that includes forgoing a printed report this year in order to redirect dollars to grantmaking.
The report also includes guidelines and procedures for applying for grants, a financial statement and a list of grants made during 2008. Northeast Ohio residents have the opportunity to vote on who will receive as much as $300,000 in funding for projects to accelerate government collaboration and efficiency in the region.
