This month we asked Stephanie Randolph, Impact Appalachia and Cassiopeia Foundation, to share her reflections on SOCAP18, held Oct. 23-26 in San Francisco.

Guest writer Bobby Thalhimer reflects on the impact that place-focused foundations have using traditional tools and challenges them to consider new ways to achieve impact in communities.

Guest writer Adam Northup, LOCUS Advisor, shares what every Community Foundation should know about Opportunity Zones. Created by the new tax law, this new tool has the potential to revitalize left behind communities.
