Mission / Vision / Values

OUR MISSION:

We use philanthropy to increase community involvement and economic development opportunities through the arts, healthcare and education.

OUR VISION:

The Central Jersey Shore region becomes a magnet in the Northeast for active members of the community who want to enjoy arts and culture, push social innovation, and pursue cutting-edge business strategies.

OUR VALUES:

COLLABORATION:

Collaboration builds impact. We want to bring the community together. We don’t want to do something we unilaterally decide is the right choice. We want stakeholders to weigh in with their opinions. When the wider community is on board it becomes more impactful.

HONESTY:

We will be transparent about our community partners; we will strive to discover and address their capacity needs; and we will always be true to what we can and can’t be as a Foundation.

LEADERSHIP:

We take steps to achieve our vision of a better community and inspire others to join us.

INTEGRITY:

We will act in what the Foundation perceives is the best interest of the community we serve.

TENACITY:

We are determined in our approach to tackling our defined issues in the community.
