We seek to make a lasting difference and bring sustainable solutions to issues facing our community.

We use our leadership to support efforts to change policies to better serve the most vulnerable members of our community. We take a disciplined approach and work to strengthen our community not just today, but for generations to come.

We invest in nonprofit organizations that are driven to make a significant difference. Our grants support approaches ranging from the proven to the innovative; we take risks and invest in ideas in which we see potential. Our staff is highly regarded and it is their expertise and relationships that guide our grantmaking and support our donors’ giving.

We empower nonprofits to develop resources and connections that will enable their future success. We bring resources, people, ideas and funds to the table to support our grantees, strengthen them to respond to new challenges, and help build their capacity to achieve their missions.
