What We Do

Group of smiling children

Our #1 goal is to build better futures for our local kids and their caregivers. 

Our staff, volunteers, donors, and agency partners create lasting, sustainable changes that transform lives and build a thriving community for us all.



We work with a dedicated group of volunteers and Campaign Coordinators who lead their companies and organizations to raise funds to address our community's areas of greatest need.

We do the due diligence that individual donors don’t always have the time, resources, or knowledge to do. Local people volunteer their time to vet all of the nonprofits we fund in the areas of quality programming, governance, finance, and sustainability. 

We are proud to have achieved the Platinum Seal of Transparency from Candid, the world's largest source of information on non-profits.  This puts us in the top .01% of charities nationally.
