Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and good health. That’s why our competitive grants program is focused on investing in programs that form the building blocks for a good life: Education, Financial Stability and Health.
Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy. Our goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.
