We build stronger communities.

    Communities and schools complement each other. Strong communities make stronger schools, and strong schools keep our communities strong.

    It takes a village to raise a child, and Creighton Community Foundation is in the business of investing in strong villagers.

    • Community Works

      The one thing proven to create a difference in life outcomes for kids in need? One Adult Supportive Relationship - to protect, nurture, and inspire (University of Harvard, Working Paper #13, 2015).

      While we focus broadly on developing school capacity and providing access to new resources for our Title I schools, our primary work is Community Works. Community Works is all about Adult Supportive Relationships. Adult relationships that protect, inspire, and change lives.

      Read on below for more details on our work, our theory of change, and our key partners.

    • Service Learning - After School in Community Action!

      Service is great, but through after school service clubs and youth gatherings, we equip kids to focus on what makes them tick - people! With an eye toward their neighborhoods, after school LEAD'er clubs rapidly take on community vibrancy projects, and pull people back into relationships. Some years it might be transforming houses of neighbors in need, building a school-connected community garden, or tackling food scarcity (40,000 hot meals served, 250 tons of fresh produce distributed!). Equal parts service work, advocacy and systems change, our “LEAD”ers bring about community vibrancy.

    • School Support

      We wouldn’t be a school without teachers and staff, so not to be missed, we also pull together a wide range of school support to make schools stronger: partnerships with community organizations, 1-1 kid services, school supplies, field trips and junior ambassador program funding, school events, and teacher mini-grants. Want to support a teacher or a school? Contact us below!

    • Food and Nutrition Projects

      Sprung from initiatives launched by our youth, we recognize the influence of scarce food, poor nutrition patterns, and food access barriers in our community. Bringing resources to bear, we resource and distribute nutritious foods, serve food in communities in need, build nutrition capacity by connecting with culturally relevant culinary influences, foment relational connection around food and nutrition, and build programs to provide sustainable food resources that are neighborhood accessible. A key element? School-connected community garden initiatives that create places of interaction. Already in place in some schools, and developing through the resources of community partners, watch this space for more details as future initiatives come into place.
