New era begins for the High Point Community Foundation

Last week, the Community Foundation relocated to its new office headquarters for the third time since opening its doors. Most recently, the Community Foundation relocated to a new suite of offices on the second floor of the new Congdon Yards on W. English Road. The Congdon family has been a faithful advocate of the Foundation, so joining in the new venture was an easy decision. The new offices were funded by the Foundation family, rather than using resources that could have gone to grants to pay for the new space. “I wanted to say that this move, this new era for the Foundation, was supported and underwritten by our entire Foundation family.” 

Another key aspect to this move has been the design and upfit of the office and the acquisition of new furniture which has been completely handled by three foundation trustees. The design and layout have been expertly overseen by John Kennett of Freeman Kennett Architects. The purchase of office furniture and donated Davis furniture has been handled by Ashley Williams, who is a second-generation trustee following her father, Danny Davis. Finally, the office construction has been supervised by Stephanie Young of I.L. Long Construction. These three remarkable trustees of the Foundation have been a tremendously talented and committed team who have brought expertise, experience and commitment to the project.
