Values: Core beliefs that guide our decision-making and actions
We were created to lead through service; we serve our donors, our area's nonprofits and our community at large.
We are entrusted with people's hopes, dreams and financial resources in perpetuity; we manage them in ways that uphold that trust and exceed expectations while remaining cost effective.
We conduct our business dealings with honor; we can be relied on to act responsibly.
We are an institution of communal good; we seek to work collaboratively and to mobilize the resources of the community to meet the community's needs.
We represent the best interest of the community as a whole; we are not obligated to individuals, organizations or others.
We learn continually and are a repository of community understanding, knowledge and expertise; we use that information to engage others and mobilize philanthropy to make a difference.
