  • Informing members regarding the needs of the community and emerging issues
  • Improving grantmaker-grantseeker cooperation and communication
  • Encouraging collaboration and new approaches to solving community problems
  • Helping to focus and coordinate community-wide interest in projects dealing with a specific area of need
