We support creative, effective and innovative programs in the areas of human services, arts and culture, education and youth, health, the environment and civic affairs. Successful projects will address community needs while demonstrating sustainable impact and measurable outcomes
  • We strive to create healthier conditions for people in our community by collectively improving and/or developing them together.
  • Funded programs will provide clearly stated goals for the incorporation of diverse cultures, philosophies and experiences. Diversity is present not only in program delivery but also in the mission, boards, and operations of the organization
  • The voices of the underserved and economically diverse are important, and programs designed to foster access for community connections are preferred.
