Investing in Community Initiatives

To catalyze action and leverage other community support, we invest in initiatives that take on complex issues of broad community importance.

“I had learned that the quality of our life—our music, our education, our attention to the environment, our support of arts and culture, our preservation and interpretation of history and many other initiatives—were all attributable to the nonprofit sector.”
