How The Bosch Community Fund Leverages Community Advisory Committees For Maximum STEM Impact


The Bosch Community Fund has found an innovative way involve community in its charitable giving, primarily focused on STEM education. 45 Community Advisory Committees in 45 Bosch North America sites help the Fund form the local relationships it needs to keep a finger on the pulse of what’s needed and most impactful in any given community.

In this episode of Cause Talk Radio, Megan and Alli talk to Kat Owsley, President of the Bosch Community Fund, about these Committees and how they work.

The conversation ranges from impact metrics and how the Community Fund has worked to standardize them to their “by invitation only” model to incorporate new community members into the fold.
