Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are striving to increase the size of our grants that we share every autumn. That is a main objective. We are pursuing this by researching grants and looking for ways that we can better economize to grow funding. We have a large portion of our building that is underdeveloped and serves as storage. We want to look at ways that the space can be put to better use by the community and also serve as a revenue producer. Our roof is in dire need of replacement. We plan to launch a capital campaign in the next few months.
