Our mission is to support efforts by the people, organizations, and communities of our eight-state region to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable prosperity.
Our organizational values distill not just who we are, but who we aspire to be, in decisions both big and small. Our six values are: Social justice, courage, grantees come first, listen and learn for change, heart, and trust.
We support organizations that work to reimagine and restructure unjust systems so communities can thrive on their own terms. See how we’re listening and learning to support grantee work for lasting change.
