Goal: To increase racial and ethnic equity
As you look around our region, we are feeling new energy, seeing new construction and hearing about new opportunities on a daily basis. To continue this momentum – even accelerate it – we must ensure that all members of our community have the opportunity to fulfill their highest potential.
The Community Foundation of Greater Buffalo recognizes this and has prioritized achieving racial equity as one of our four primary community goals. When we close racial gaps in workforce participation we will see a broader tax base, more income for families and households— making the region an estimated $12 billion wealthier and more competitive for investment and development.
