News, Strategic Assessment

Community leaders gathered Thursday at the Chancellor’s Residence (Brumit Pisgah House) at UNC Asheville to welcome the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation and its new Executive Director Maurice “Mo” Green, to the city. This event was the latest stop on the Foundation’s Mo Wants to Know tour.

Launched in May 2016, Mo Wants to Know is a statewide listening and learning tour where Green, Trustees and staff will hear from state leaders, local leaders and other community members about trends and challenges, but also about opportunities, successes and ideas they have for making North Carolina a better place. This tour is part of the Foundation’s yearlong assessment to better understand the state’s shifting landscape and determine how it can best respond to these changes. During this time, the Foundation will also evaluate and examine its grantmaking and broader work.
