Our grants and impact are made possible by the deeply-rooted relationships we have with dynamic organizations, public sector agencies, businesses, and individuals. Our support is more than just financial. As we collaborate in multiple ways directly with a partner – learning together and advancing shared goals – we bring organizations together to develop synergies. The experience, knowledge, passion and friendship of these collaborators empower us to better support and invest in their ideas because, quite simply, we believe in them.
