We pursue our mission through three impact areas in which we invest in proven and promising programs, systemic solutions, capital projects, general operations, planning and capacity building, and policy development:

Youth Pathways to Success
Increase the number of youth who progress in their education and secure meaningful employment.

Economic Growth and Opportunity
Bolster a vital, diverse and growing economy that advances individual and community prosperity.

Strong and Vibrant Communities
Support local efforts to build thriving communities.


Emergent Issues and Opportunities: The foundation also considers requests outside of our three primary areas of focus to fund projects with high potential for impact and learning.
