The Foundation is pleased to share with the community the new Burress Family Center for Philanthropy, a collaborative meeting space. This charitable hub, located on the third floor of the Foundation's new offices in the 751 West Fourth building, was designed to serve as a philanthropic center and an active, visible, and accessible focal point for the community’s charitable organizations. We are thrilled that this philanthropic gathering space, sponsored by the family of John and Mary Louise Burress and other generous donors, will serve as a valuable community resource where nonprofits can come together to learn, to network, and to share their ideas.
