Community Connectedness

Engaging in Community

Communities are stronger when all people from all races and cultures have the opportunity to become engaged in the community in multiple ways. We support efforts that build community connectedness and the opportunity for equitable participation in arts and culture, civic dialogue and engagement, community problem solving, non-profit and philanthropic work, placemaking, and natural and built spaces where people live, work and play.
