Our Impact: Vision 2020

In 2013, the Foundation received a substantial unrestricted endowment gift. In 2014, we celebrated our 25th anniversary. The significant, but unrelated events, sparked a new exchange about expanding the Foundation’s impact across the region.

Over the next three years, we met with community leaders, nonprofit executives, industry experts, and funders to identify areas where the needs are the greatest, but the resources are not as strong as they could be. Or need to be. Youth Development and Nonprofit Capacity-Building emerged as the forerunners for our Vision 2020 initiative.

In 2018, we brought our ideas to several community influencers and asked them to join a local philanthropic collaborative with us. Their receptivity was only surpassed by their generosity. Each committed to invest a minimum of $5,000 over the next three to five years to create a large pool of discretionary funds to strategically impact our targeted areas.

To date, we have raised almost $400,000. Our goal is to reach $1 million by the end of 2020.


We are currently researching other youth programs and nonprofit capacity-building projects that would benefit from the Foundation’s support.

Help us reach our $1 million goal by becoming one of our visionaries. Join our unique funder collaborative by investing a minimum of $5,000 in this program over the next three to five years.
