A recent study commissioned by the CFO and the Musgrave Foundation, shows Springfield’s nonprofit community as a major player in the social and economic structure of the city. Dan Prater led the study, as Director of the Center for Nonprofit Communication at Drury University. “With the study, I wanted not only to clarify some misconceptions, but I wanted people to know that nonprofits are players.” To the tune of $4 Billion dollars a year in Springfield alone, 20% of the city’s total revenue.

Seven Ozarks organizations are the recipients of a combined $50,000 to help support education of area youth. Specifically, the money will address the “red flags” related to early childhood issues.

“In this week of thankfulness and Thanksgiving, I am so thankful for the work you do to get our children off to a best and early start. That makes all the difference in a child’s life,” said Brian Fogle, president of Community Foundation for the Ozarks (CFO).
