Our work is to help build vibrant communities by cultivating community capacity.

Vibrancy depends on long-term resources for long-term solutions, it comes from all corners of the community, and it needs leadership, so:

  • We work with donors to build endowment funds that ensure vibrant futures for our communities and neighbourhoods.
  • We grant funds to the widest possible range of organizations and initiatives to meet community needs.
  • We bring neighbours together from all parts of our communities to stimulate new ideas, build participation, and strengthen community philanthropy.

  • INTEGRITY - We are honest, respectful and ethical in all our thoughts and actions.
  • ACCOUNTABILITY - We are accountable to those with whom we work and to those we serve including donors, clients, and partners.
  • INCLUSIVITY - We are open to diverse thoughts and actions, regognizing that our communities and neighbourhoods include people of all ages and stations.
  • INNOVATION - We are creative and inventive in our responses to opportunities and challenges.
  • PERSPECTIVE- We are conscious that our decisions and actions impact today's and future generations.
