About the Foundation

Driven by the belief in community, the Foundation is growing philanthropy through supporting nonprofits, ensuring giving is effective, and offering complimentary charitable planning. The Foundation’s utmost priority is being a resource hub where individuals and nonprofits alike can be supported in their charitable endeavors without worry of bias or competition. To safeguard this longstanding practice, the Foundation does not fundraise. Over the last decade, the Foundation and its affiliates have distributed over $150 million to charitable causes.
