We believe in:

  • Equity: All young people have the right to participate in opportunities of their choosing. We recognize there are financial barriers to doing so.  Financially supporting access to opportunities is a step toward equity.
  • Resilience: Children, youth and families have inherent capacity and can mobilize resources and supports in their lives.
  • Partnership: Working together across our community activates critical instrumental support for people.  We reach out across the community to share news of the fund and invite applications.
  • Privacy: Our application form asks only for information we need and we keep information confidential.
  • Responsiveness: We respond quickly to requests.
  • Roots: We come from the community and from organizations that support the community.
