Responding to Our Community During COVID-19 Pandemic

Our Foundation’s mission focuses on the strength of our community. Your work is a critical part of our community’s strength and is a priority for us– ALL OF YOUR WORK. No matter where you are – in communities that are hard hit by COVID-19 or communities that are still anxiously awaiting possible outbreaks. No matter what you are strengthening - a child’s life, a family’s future, an education system, a community’s livelihoods, or our water quality. We can use the knowledge we have gained from our past work to express even deeper care for each other to keep our community healthy and safe for all. And, we can continue to build systems that create equitable outcomes that communities need and deserve. We are here to support you in your work.
