Community Projects: We support projects that advance a community quality-of-life improvement agenda, and that it gives funding priority to projects that offer collaborative opportunities to improve vitality and well-being in neighborhoods.

Grantmaking in the Community Projects area is also designed to cultivate and encourage community engagement in philanthropic practice through matched giving opportunities, such as the Foundation-sponsored Critical Needs Alert giving events.
