Strong, vital communities are those in which everyone can participate. They are resourceful and resilient. Community foundations nurture and build our communities strengths and assets. We respond to challenges and opportunities and support organisations to do likewise.
We seek to understand and care for our communities
Changes to the economy, the environment and demographics are constant and affect our country and communities. We participate in the life of the community, continually engaging in research, consultation and discussion.
We embrace diversity and create opportunities for dialogue and discussion
Supporting a vibrant community means ensuring that people with different experiences and points of view are included. We bring together people in our communities for dialogue and joint problem solving.
