So, how were we able to generate $1 million of economic impact every day in 2017?  We did it by harnessing the power of our clients, partners and patrons.  We coupled the passion and drive of our clients with our team of highly talented difference makers, to make things happen.

Looking ahead, we’ll use these strategies as our roadmap:

  • ACHIEVE Organizational Excellence; ensure that our vision, mission, goals, and strategies are supported by a strong, fiscally sound, diverse and economically sustainable operation.
  • BUILD a Great Team; recruit and retain an engaged, high-quality and diverse team of professional staff and volunteer leaders.
