Our Values & Priorities

All grants from the Community Foundation will reflect our values:

Hope and opportunity, particularly for youth
Empowering our youth to have aspirations for a bright future and creating opportunities for them to realize their dreams.

Collaborative community goals and decision making
Supporting active partnerships that are working together sharing power, resources, and decision-making for the common good.

An inclusive community
Building a welcoming, accepting community that respects difference and actively promotes full participation by all people; a place where everyone has the opportunity to share their voice, to participate in decisions that affect their lives, and to have access to all the community has to offer.

Strategic Grantmaking

In order to implement our values, the Community Foundation recently defined strategic goals with specific areas of focus. We’re excited to share these this plan with the community in the near future. Look for more information soon!
