To inspire, engage and empower visionary organizations on the frontlines of social change.

We advance our mission by:

  • Fostering projects that advance the public well-being in the areas of health, legal, financial and education.


We believe in funding organizations with a deep level of community involvement, are led by effective leaders, and tackle challenging and timely problems. Specific organizational attributes valued are: visionary leadership, organizational sustainability, innovation, organizational strength, network of partnerships and impact on population being served.

We are committed to the core values of responsiveness, accessibility, fairness and involvement. We encourage the development of effective ways to share ideas and knowledge. Our strategy is to bring about changes to help people live healthier and more productive lives. When reviewing requests, we consider whether or not we can make a meaningful difference with our influence and our investments. Once we commit to an area of need, we define major goals and identify a clear path to achieving them. We seek programs and organizations with the potential to make the greatest possible impact in our communities.
