Addressing pressing and unmet needs facing our shared community

Effective, positive and lasting change

Together with donors, we address a number of pressing and unmet needs facing our shared community. Over time, donors gave directly to us to impact ever-changing community needs. The issues addressed are inspired by donor interests and informed through our relationship with the community.
