To facilitate long-term transformative change in our region, the Community Foundation prioritizes its leadership work using community goals developed through a strategic planning process led by the Board of Directors every five years. In 2022, this thoughtful process was informed by publicly available data and trends, along with interviews with community leaders, a sector survey, focus groups and input from 950 residents experiencing financial hardship. Our current strategic plan will guide us through 2027.
Through that process, the following community goals were determined:
Achieve racial/ethnic equityLearn more
Steward significant environmental resources in the context of climate resilienceLearn more
Arts and Culture
Promote regional vibrancy through architecture, arts and cultureLearn more
