About Us


Our approach to enhancing and sustaining communities


Who we serve

Vibrant communities
Our commitment extends to the very fabric of the neighborhoods we proudly call home. By investing in the unique qualities that make each community thrive, we contribute to the collective prosperity and well-being.

We recognize our employees as integral members of the communities we serve. By empowering them to be active participants in positive change, we amplify our impact and foster a sense of pride and purpose.


What we do

Financial investments, knowledge and expertise: We don't just offer financial investments; we bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table. Our approach goes beyond dollars and cents, aiming to cultivate relationships that create a ripple effect of positive change.

Equity and access: We champion equity and access, to ensure everyone has the opportunity to be successful. By making meaningful investments in targeted, strategic focus areas, we empower individuals to reach their full potential and contribute to the vitality of their communities.

Cultural capital: We understand the value of cultural capital and non-financial social assets that contribute to social mobility and success in a culture or society. Our investments foster cultural knowledge and experiences that can provide our communities with social advantages in various aspects of life, including education, employment, and social interactions.


How we do it

Our methods are as diverse as the communities we serve. We understand that each community has unique needs, and our approach varies accordingly. From grantmaking to volunteering to board service, we adapt our methods to ensure the greatest impact.

Our impact

Our initiatives benefit:

  • The community at large, creating a positive ripple effect that extends beyond individual efforts.
  • Under-served and under-resourced groups, ensuring that our investments address the unique challenges these communities face.
  • Businesses and entrepreneurs as we contribute to economic growth, job creation, and the overall prosperity of the communities we serve.
  • Nonprofit Organizations (NPOs) we collaborate with, providing them with the financial support, knowledge, and expertise needed to amplify their impact and address critical community need
