We are a public charity created to help gather together community resources, thereby realizing the potential that exists when we invest in the vision of communities. Through the generosity of donors, and the expert contributions of our staff, our board, and partner organizations, we continuously strive to be a catalyst for transformation.
In simple terms, we accept charitable donations and manage them based on sustainable and responsible investment practices. We distribute funds out — primarily through grants to other charities – and, throughout this process we work hands-on with others to ensure the end result is always about more than just dollars and cents.
