    Great that Carson and his community foundation take on advocacy. This is an important tool community foundations can utilize to tackle hairy social challenges like affordable housing. However undertaking such strategies must not be at the expense of helping support nonprofits that carry out that policy work on the ground. Carson’s community foundation has turned its back on local nonprofits, for the most part. Where is the “community” spirit that is present in their name. Perhaps they should just call themselves Silicon Valley Foundation reflecting where they happen to reside. Oh wait…SV is not the only place they reside.
