Purpose and Activities

The mission going forward is to promote positive change in people's lives and to build and enhance the communities in which they live. The foundation has an especially strong interest in supporting innovative endeavors leading to better circumstances for low-income youth and their families. The foundation seeks to learn from their investments, share what they have learned, and inspire others in the public and private sectors to make similar commitments. The foundation has established two primary initiatives: 1) Fostering Opportunity - to support efforts that help create access to opportunity and improve life chances for low-income young people and their families; and 2) Enhancing Quality of Life - to preserve green space and parks, and sustain a vibrant arts community.
