One of the biggest purposes of community foundations is to play a large role in building, strengthening and supporting the local nonprofit ecosystem. By supporting this important ecosystem in Grant, Adams, and Lincoln Counties we can help our community organizations to deliver their mission effectively now and long into the future. This is a responsibility that Columbia Basin Foundation takes seriously, ensuring safe and productive communities in which we can all enjoy living, working, and playing.
A big role of a community foundation is to bring awareness to their community partners, in an effort to help lift up organizations that are having a positive effect on the surrounding area. Columbia Basin Foundation has been honored to work with and get to know many of these organizations. We are delighted to bring you another round of the Nonprofit Spotlight to shine the light on all of the good that these groups are doing. This month we sat down with Mike Tabler, Trustee for the Paul Lauzier Foundation, to learn more about one great man's incredible legacy of charitable giving.
