We are proud to welcome two third-year law students with an interest in service to the community as our first Community Fellows.
They are the first selected for our fellows program, which is part of the Alliance for Advocacy and Philanthropy, our partnership with the Stetson University College of Law.
The two students will work projects throughout the semester that will be of benefit to the Community Foundation and our work. And they will work closely with our professional staff in Community Impact, Philanthropy and Development, Finance, Communications, the President’s Office and LEAP Tampa Bay to broaden their knowledge of the Foundation and the Tampa Bay nonprofit community.
