Our Beneficiaries And Causes
As a granting foundation, we support many causes and organizations in our community. The one common factor among all our beneficiaries and causes is that they are all local. We believe in supporting those nonprofits that, in turn, support our local community. We subscribe to the mantra of Fred Rogers that it is vitally important to be a good neighbor. Much like Mister Rogers, we believe our local nonprofits are the heroes:
“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. “It’s easy to say ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.”
— Fred Rogers
The causes include education, animal rescues, eradicating hunger within our community’s school aged population, combating homelessness, supporting victims of domestic violence, mental health awareness, supporting our special needs community, and many more worthy missions. We support these great organizations and causes through financial grants. You can learn more about our grant process by visiting our Grants page.
