Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation Launches Resident Survey
SHEFFIELD — Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation is conducting an online survey to deepen its understanding of the needs and priorities of residents in its four-county region. Full-time, part-time and seasonal residents of Berkshire County are encouraged to participate in the survey, which will be open through Oct. 28 at www.btcfsurvey.com.
Berkshire Taconic aims to reach as many residents as possible so that a wide variety of voices and opinions are considered. Respondents over age 18 who complete the survey will be eligible to enter a drawing for an iPad Pro.
The survey is part of a comprehensive community assessment by Berkshire Taconic, with research partner Mt. Auburn Associates, to examine the current issues, trends, and needs in the 70 towns and three cities the foundation serves. After a synthesis of existing research and constituent engagement through surveys and focus groups, assessment findings will be used to identify a set of critical issue areas where philanthropy can have an impact and the foundation can provide leadership to achieve results for all residents. The findings will be shared with the public in 2017.
