we honor and celebrate our founders' legacy. Their belief in "giving back" inspires us to be responsible stewards of the Foundation's resources and to do our work with compassion and respect.
We value education;
its power to transform lives, inculcate good citizenship, and improve communities adds intrinsic value to the human experience and creates self-sufficient, productive, and responsible citizens. We believe a vibrant democracy requires that a good education be accessible by all.
We value the arts
as integral to the human existence and as essential components of a complete community.
We are committed
to ethical decision-making, transparency, fairness, inclusiveness, diversity, and the public good.
We will identify
creative and strategic opportunities to make a difference.
We value our heritage
as a family foundation. Family involvement will remain a vital element of foundation governance.
