CHILDREN AND YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
The Foundation supports efforts that promote the safety, security and physical and emotional health of children and youth. Attention is given to efforts which decrease social isolation and promote a sense of hope among those dealing with hardships or trauma.
COMMUNITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
The Foundation supports strategies that engage people as the fundamental stewards of the natural environment. We favor restoration and conservation efforts with a particular emphasis on organizations and projects that engage diverse stakeholders and promote volunteerism.
COMMUNITY BUILDING AND DEVELOPMENT
The Foundation envisions communities that are vibrant, diverse and benefit from active and engaged citizens. We support civic engagement that strengthens neighborhoods and communities by promoting community-based self determination, volunteerism and service.
CULTURE AND THE ARTS
The Foundation believes in the power of culture and the arts to promote community and economic development. We support well-managed organizations and efforts that are responsive to the communities they serve and offer high-quality, relevant and accessible cultural and artistic experiences.
The Foundation recognizes that the path toward greater levels of self sufficiency is influenced by many factors and supported by a range of assistance; from ensuring the availability of basic needs such as food and shelter, to skill-building that leads to wage progression, personal savings and financial stabilization. Support is offered for efforts that improve and/or increase access to such assistance, and especially for efforts that empower families to recognize their own power to influence and improve their condition.
