Creating opportunity and advancing equity are at the heart of The Foundation’s strategic vision guiding its work and community investments. To The Foundation, opportunity and equity are not two separate goals, but are one path forward. A more equitable community is one where opportunity is available to everyone in all facets of life. Across all areas and sectors of society, from education and healthcare to the arts and the economy, The Foundation believes that by coalescing around a shared vision of greater opportunity and greater equity, and by working together in new ways, our community will make progress in meeting the challenges of our time.
