Education: enabling kids to be all that kids can be

From the early years to adulthood, we’re supporting the full path of development to help children and youth achieve their potential.

Income: moving people from poverty to possibility

We are working with the community to create opportunities so that individuals with low or limited incomes can prosper.

Wellness: promoting healthy people, strong communities

We are supporting individuals and families to feel a personal sense of wellbeing and connection to their community.

We will achieve our commitment to building strong, resilient communities through investing donor dollars in programs that impact our community, by partnering within the community to address underlying issues that impact residents and by promoting the needs and interests of our more vulnerable populations.  Collectively these efforts comprise of our Community Impact Strategy.
