Community Development

To improve the quality of life in the communities in which we live and work by investing in programs and projects which focus on civic engagement, economic and workforce development, building restoration and sustainable development.

Health and Human Services

To advance the health, safety and well-being of the people living in the communities we serve through thoughtful investments in charitable organizations with a focus on disease prevention, substance abuse prevention and treatment, mental health, and the promotion of conditions conducive to a healthy lifestyle.
