Strong, vital communities are those in which everyone can participate. They are resourceful and resilient. Community foundations nurture and build our community’s strengths and assets.

We respond to challenges and opportunities and support organizations and individuals to do likewise.

We develop local leadership, invest in sustainability, champion justice, and mobilize civic participation and resources.

We actively participate in the life of the community, continually engage in consultation and discussion, track and report on local and national trends and respond to change.
