We believe our residents should have the same opportunities to thrive and succeed in life. Our innovative and supportive grantmaking is impactful, sustainable and enriches the community.

We address regional needs by partnering, investing and convening that result in tangible community impact. We are more than a funder, we are a partner.


We care about:

  • EQUITY – leveling the playing field to success. Our residents should have the same opportunities to thrive.
  • COMMUNITY – local collaboration for collective impact. We partner with local nonprofits, donors and other foundations to address community gaps whose missions are in line with ours.
  • GIVING BACK – Charitable giving strengthens and builds vibrancy in our communities.

We facilitate philanthropic support to improve quality of life for local residents in need and focus on three priority issue areas including:

Community Revitalization

Support to those who are enhancing communities by making them safe, vibrant, clean, and green. This includes programs or projects that are improving communities physically, socially, or economically. 

Educational Attainment

Supplemental support outside the normal school day, additional support for first-generation students entering college, vocational programs, and adult workforce development programs leading to education beyond a high school diploma.

Positive Youth Development

Support for an intentional, pro-social approach that engages youth with their communities. We want to recognize and build upon a youths strengths, foster positive relationships, and build their leadership potential. 

Our priority areas are chosen based on stakeholder interviews, nonprofit convenings and data assessment.
