Community Foundation launches new community learning series


The Quad Cities Community Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of a monthly series that will bring together donors, community members and Quad Citizens working at nonprofits that have received grant support—or hold Nonprofit Endowment Funds—at the Community Foundation.

“There is incredible work happening all around us, and at the Community Foundation, we have the opportunity to see that firsthand every single day,” said Joscelyn Rowe, director of donor engagement and stewardship. “We launch this series with the hope that it is an opportunity for all of us to learn even more about our most promising opportunities and pressing needs.”  

The series will kick off on Tuesday, May 21 with Hearing Voices, a simulation that replicates the type of auditory hallucinations associated with schizophrenia. Presented in partnership with Vera French Community Mental Health Center, a grantee of the Community Foundation, the simulation is a groundbreaking and empathy-building experience which helps people understand the challenges of those who experience psychosis.

Through this immersive and interactive presentation, participants will understand the realities of mental illness and talk about the opportunities to support community members in the Quad Cities with mental illness.

RSVP by Wednesday, May 15 by filling out the brief form below.
