  • Low-income communities and residents need and are entitled to the same expertise and the same expectations of excellence that are available to their wealthier neighbors.

  • Isolation is the hallmark of unhealthy communities and organizations. We endeavor to stand at the intersection of multiple constituencies and to work to break through silos.

  • Asking the right questions is a root source of leadership. As our world evolves, our questions must evolve.

  • "We must be the change we want to see in the world." -Mahatma Gandhi

  • Since 1985, we have invested more than $2.2 billion to support
    organizations and businesses that benefit underserved communities.
