- We believe in investing in smaller/newer nonprofits that need that may not have the capacity/history to be approved for private foundation grants or other fundraising mechanisms.
- We give the highest priority to basic needs (i.e. food, clothing, shelter) but will also consider educational, emotional, recreational and other needs as deemed necessary.
- We are dedicated and focused to steward our donor dollars to programs and organizations that make a large impact in our community.
