Developing Community is at the core of our Foundation, and this grants round we are pleased to be funding seven projects in our Community Development field of interest, and several others also fit this definition.
What is Community Development?
The United Nations defines community development as “a process where community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems.”
It is our belief that we are all stronger together and through our Community Grants we encourage collaboration, skills building and awareness-raising to act on this belief. This has always been one of our fields of interest and is so important to what we do and what makes our community strong.
Join us as we celebrate our Spring 2017 Community Grants
Monday May 15, 4:00-6:00 pm at the Residence Inn by Marriott.

“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.” Cesar Chavez
