It takes a network of strong nonprofits and community leaders to positively impact the lives of our citizens. As the connector between philanthropic contributors and local organizations, we help nonprofits become sustainable, experiment with new ideas, and make a greater impact.

Our grants strengthen local nonprofits, and our scholarships are building tomorrow’s leaders.
