On behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, welcome to the Foundation’s “Quarterly Report.” The Report replaces the traditional once-a-year printed “Annual Report” with a more dynamic, real-time look at our Foundation’s major activities, results and accomplishments. Beyond the significant budget savings, we believe that the Report is more aligned with our deep commitment to full transparency and accountability in all we do. We invite you to follow the links below for current information on the Foundation’s point of view, investments, grantmaking, donors, stories on those impacted by our work, and more.
Our Perspective: The Our Perspective column gives you a sense of the emerging issues we see, how we believe they impact our communities, and what the Foundation is doing to address them.
Financial Stewardship: Our goal is to safeguard the funds entrusted to us and provide strong stewardship of their investment. The Quarterly Investment Performance Report shows how we’re doing against key benchmarks and provides links to more detail on the Foundation’s financial reporting and accountability.
Community Investments: We accomplish our mission by investing in organizations and programs that achieve clear human gains for those in our region. Here you will find a Year-to-Date listing of all Grant & Initiative Funding from our 160 Discretionary, Donor-advised and Designated Funds, plus links to grants made in years past.
Who’s Giving?: With more than 160 individually-named Funds under our stewardship, this updated list of current donors shows the breadth & depth of generous giving we are so fortunate to experience each year. You’ll find many of your friends and neighbors on these lists. You can join them by clicking on the Donate Now button anywhere on our website!
Our Stories: We love to highlight the people, organizations and communities that the Foundation is so fortunate to be able to help. So, if you want a smile, I hope you’ll check out these great stories.
