OUR APPROACH STARTS WITH COMMUNITY:
Through summits, community meetings and research, we identify the root causes of some of our community's most complex challenges.
WE IDENTIFY BROKEN SYSTEMS
We look at the institutions providing public services and work to make them better.
WE WORK WITH OUR PARTNERS TO DRIVE CHANGE
We pool the resources of our public, private and nonprofit partners to multiply our impact through giving, advocating and volunteering.
WE INVEST IN KEY FOCUS AREAS
We focus donor contributions on strategies in Education, Economic Prosperity and Health that change individual lives and benefit the entire community so everyone has the same opportunities to succeed.
