UnderstandHow We Leverage Focused Philanthropy

Integrate: We integrate with community-based non-profits who know their communities and have aligned programs that have shown efficacy but require support and focus. Our integration model is cooperative not acquisition-based.

Support: We support those who are aligned with our goals. Our support includes management of metrics, and funding support. Corporate sponsors provide support through the Foundation’s philanthropic vehicle.

Innovate: Innovation becomes the intersection between just-in-time integration and sustainable support. We create philanthropic lifecycles to support community programs that would not otherwise see corporate support.
