We will build community vitality
Strong, vital communities are those in which everyone can participate. They are resourceful and resilient. Community foundations nurture and build our community’s strengths and assets. We will endeavor to develop local leadership, invest in sustainability, champion justice, and mobilize civic participation and resources. We will actively participate in the life of the community, continually engaging in consultation and discussion.

We will create opportunities for dialogue
Nurturing a vital community means reaching out and ensuring that people with different experiences and points of view are included, especially those who are often excluded. We will enthusiastically participate when invited to dialogues convened by others.

We will embrace partnerships
More can be accomplished when we act together. We believe in the power of collaboration and joint action to maximize our community’s opportunities and respond to our challenges. We will initiate, participate in, and support partnerships that build community vitality and are based
on shared vision and mutual responsibility.

We will learn and share what we know
We have extraordinary opportunities to learn from our donors, our partners and our colleagues around the country and the world. We will gather data, question, reflect, and evaluate so that we can have impact on our community. We will share what we learn with others.

We will be responsive and accountable
We will be reputable stewards of community resources and will be committed to being accountable, responsive and transparent. We will continually look for the best ways to invest our assets to further our mission. We will be open and accessible, fair and objective, flexible and timely as we work with donors, sponsors, volunteers and others in the community.
