We invest our resources to strengthen early education opportunities for young children, protect natural lands and waterways, and promote economic vitality through robust employment development.
Our aim is to support change in communities, regions and the state. We focus on four key elements that create the right conditions for change: high-functioning systems, strong public policies, engaged communities, and effective organizations. Because progress is often hindered by inefficient and fragmented systems, we look for efforts that champion networks, bring in new partners, improve coordination, adapt to changing circumstances, and build toward solutions at an appropriate scale.
