Shared beliefs that guide our work:

  • We can do more together than any of our individual organizations can do alone.
  • We serve as strong advocates for the nonprofit sector, a sector that includes service providers, grantseekers, and grantmakers.
  • We recognize that local needs and solutions may look different across the state and require unique support.
  • We value transparency about our efforts and investments in order to continuously learn from our collective and individual successes and challenges.
  • We openly acknowledge and discuss the inherent power dynamics in our work, considering the impact and influence of our process and actions.

Actions we will employ:

  • To leverage both our financial and human capital as we all benefit from the diversity of resources, time and connections we each bring to the table.
  • To invest in the advancement of strategies that will realize long-term impact for the sector. At the same time, we aim to balance this with the need for flexible and responsive dollars for new ideas and approaches.
  • To share and replicate promising practices when appropriate and welcomed.
  • To encourage other funders – corporate, public and individual – to join our efforts.
