We believe that the challenges that confront us can be solved – not by one person – but by a community. By working together, we can build a community where every person has the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life.
Responding to the needs of local communities, we have joined with leaders around Whatcom County to help build a library, create community spaces, bring locally grown food into our school cafeterias, and much more.
A healthy and vibrant nonprofit sector is critical to keeping our community strong. Beyond grant-making, we support local nonprofits with training, networking opportunities, and specialized endowment fund management.
