The Fresno Pacific University Center for Community Transformation (CCT) will build on hope in Fresno and beyond. The CCT is a new effort to connect the strengths of the university with the resources of the region to transform cities.
Looking into the heart of the city, some observers see statistics: high rates of poverty, crime, drug use, gang activity and violence; low levels of income, education and employment.
FPU was well represented at Fresno’s National Philanthropy Day celebration November 15.
Nadene and Marvin and Steinert, Linda Calandra and Wells Fargo were among those honored at a luncheon sponsored by the Association of Fundraising Professionals California Valley Chapter at University Square Hotel, Fresno. All were nominated by Charity Brown, director of alumni and church relations.
