We achieve this by:
Raising assets: We partner with exemplary individuals, families and others who care passionately about improving the community and create permanent charitable funds.
Stewarding assets: We invest and administer charitable assets based on a set of rigorous national standards.
Distributing assets: We make grants to nonprofit organizations that are doing important work in health and human services, youth and families, arts and culture, education – and for civic and environmental benefit.
Community leadership: We serve as a convener by bringing together key stakeholders to determine community needs; we facilitate the development of collaborative solutions to important community issues; and we act as a catalyst for positive change.
