- We believe in investing in smaller and newer nonprofits that need assistance, but may not have the capacity or history to tackle large, private foundation grants and/or other fundraising mechanisms.
- We give the highest priority to “Basic (Physical) Needs,” but will address educational, emotional, recreational and other needs as deemed necessary.
- We will make the greatest attempts to steward our donors’ dollars to programs and organizations that make a large impact in our community.
