Under our strategic plan, we strive to strengthen our focus on community and the positive impact achieved through our grantmaking. Central to our funding priorities is the policy governing grant-making support from discretionary funds. Our funding priorities fall into three categories: Basic Needs, Healthy Communities and Vibrant Democracy.
