Foundation Study Report Released
As reported in a recent KQED news article, a report by Applied Survey Research, “Foundation Giving in the Bay Area: Who Wins and Who’s Left Behind,” Solano County has the highest rate of families in poverty and the lowest rate of foundation giving among the nine Bay Area Counties.
The study found that when compared to a similar study conducted a decade ago by the James Irvine Foundation entitled “Giving in California,” nothing has changed in the past ten years....Solano County ranked last then too. Continued research to examine causes related to this issue will be conducted and included in a follow-up report at a later time.
