About Resourceful Communities and The Conservation Fund
Resourceful Communities, a program of The Conservation Fund, was established in 1991 to support a grassroots network that implements the “triple bottom line” in North Carolina communities. The support we provide 500+ community groups results in social, environmental and economic benefits; enables access to otherwise inaccessible resources; and helps move people and places out of poverty. Because Resourceful Communities works closely with local partners, including nonprofit, private and public concerns, we help ensure local ownership of long-term change.
