Our Values

Community Foundation management, staff and volunteers are united by a common set of values, which are:

Community Outreach:

We engage with our communities. We do not work in isolation. We practice our problem-solving abilities, share our knowledge, and give of our time and resources to make concrete positive contributions to our communities.


We choose to empower. Instead of simply providing resources, our work focuses on developing in individuals the capacity and confidence they need to change their own situations and assist their communities.

Cooperation & Partnership:

We value the opportunity to work together on common goals and toward a common purpose. We value the strengths and expertise of others and seek to work with them to improve outcomes for all in our community.


We value and recognise when people accomplish something they have set out to do through their skills, practice, perseverance or exertion. We value completing what we set out to do, adding value to and making a tangible difference to our community and work.
