Thank You to Everyone Who Helped Us

Meet the $20,000 Challenge Match!



A very generous person has gifted us with a Challenge Match, up to $20,000,

inspired by their belief in this community! We have met that match, but every gift still counts!

Together, we will build important community assets, through engaged dialogue,

culminating into effective actions that improve lives and community.

That’s our secret mojo. An inclusive community approach has been the key to our community character

and provides the rigor that strengthens and builds trustful community connections for the long term.

We are all in this life together.

Every day, I am in awe of community passion inspired by Volunteer driven initiatives connected through a wide variety of Foundation resources.

This year we invested heavily in strengthening these efforts by providing resources like financial, human, physical places,

and multi-faceted communication channels. As Coretta Scott King said,

“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the

compassionate actions of its members, a heart of grace and a soul generated by love”.

My hope is that the spirit of Mrs. King’s words resonates throughout this holiday season.

Let’s celebrate coming together to strengthen community in 2017 and joyfully anticipate what 2018 may hold for all of us.
