Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

National Neighborhood Day

Disconnected neighbors and a lack of community participation characterize many American neighborhoods. Lodestar awarded several capacity-building grants to National Neighborhood Day, an organization promoting an annual day of celebration – the third Sunday of September – in municipalities around the country to bring neighbors, government agencies and local nonprofits together to build community spirit in an effort to increase civic action and responsibility.
