Community Foundation will celebrate 25 years

After 25 years, The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound may no longer qualify as the region’s best-kept secret. The foundation’s assets have grown to more than $17 million, and it now makes grants to nearly 100 organizations per year. The Community Foundation manages funds from many local family trusts and philanthropists. And though it’s slowly gaining recognition, many potential contributors and beneficiaries still don’t know about its good work. Perhaps a 25th anniversary celebration event on May 8 — this Thursday — featuring Peter Buffet — son of major philanthropist and wily investor Warren Buffett — will draw the attention it deserves.
