UPCOMING COMMUNITY FOUNDATION FUND ADVISOR PORTAL TRANSITION
The Community Foundation will be transitioning to a new back-office software provider to improve all aspects of our operations. As part of this new software adoption, we will also be rolling out a new and improved portal for our donors and fund advisors in the upcoming weeks. This new portal will provide an enhanced fund management experience for you and allow us to support your work more fully.
To facilitate our transition to the new system, we will have a blackout period to pause fund related transactions from March 23rd through March 31st. The last day to initiate transactions through the current portal will be Monday, March 20th. Please be sure to reach out to your Relationship Manager with any questions and thanks for your patience and cooperation during this period of transition!
