About Us

We are one community, our cause is one,
and our efforts to help each other are one.

We believe in advancing the common good through a strategic focus on the building blocks of a good life: education, financial stability and health. It takes the whole community to get the results we need. We work together with businesses, government, schools, faith groups, the media, individual community members, and non-profits.

Positive change begins with a single act: your decision to give in a way that matters to you. Whether money, time, or your voice; your action is combined with those of your neighbors and together the power to make an impact is multiplied. The generosity of our donors enables us to provide grants for outcome based programs and collaborative projects that address core needs and achieve lasting, measurable results.
