We make philanthropic investments with local and national non-profits, striving to empower and uplift communities. Some of our partnerships have included museums, improving public parks, supporting shelters for abused women and children, creating opportunities for developmentally challenged youth, working with the local school district to encourage mentoring and inspirational leadership, and programs that reward business for imagination and innovation. In carrying out its mission, the Foundation strives to maintain a long‐term perspective and focus on the challenges and opportunities that will have the greatest impact over time.
The Foundation views its primary function as that of a catalyst. It seeks to be responsive to programs that are innovative, yet strive to create permanent solutions to community needs.
