We grant funds to the widest possible range of organizations and initiatives.

We base our funding decisions on both our Vital Signs research and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We bring people together from all parts of the community to stimulate new ideas, build participation, and strengthen community philanthropy. We identify long-term needs and opportunities in partnership with other funders, community groups and government.
