Our Mission

We engage communities and mobilize resources to create a southwest Washington where everyone can chart their own path toward prosperity and participate fully in shaping our region’s future.

Our Vision

We envision a flourishing and just southwest Washington, where prosperity is shared, belonging is universal and everyone holds a deep commitment to caring for one another.

Our Values

Make a place for everyone.

We create a sense of belonging by embracing, respecting and celebrating the people and perspectives that make our region culturally rich and resilient.

Equity is essential.

We know equity is the key to creating a more just world, and centering racial equity allows us to more effectively address the disparities and barriers that hamper our collective potential.

Learn at every turn.

We are passionately curious, continuously listening to and learning from our partners and communities in order to leverage our collective knowledge and experiences for greater impact.

Forge connections for good.

We walk alongside communities to foster authentic, lasting partnerships across all sectors, and we build the bonds and bridges of social capital to strengthen our region for the long-term.

Serve generations to come.

As an accountable steward of this place, its people and our shared priorities, we manage the resources entrusted to us responsibly and transform them into immediate and lasting impacts that respond to the wishes of our donors and communities.
