Our Four Pillars of Giving

Education

We believe in the power of a good education and its role in future success. Partnerships with K-12 schools, GEAR UP and the state’s public higher education institutions are a centerpiece of our community commitment.

Self Sufficiency

We’re dedicated to helping people move forward on the road to stability. Often our support is in the form of offering our special expertise in financial education with free workshops for clients or employees.

Public Employees and Assets

We were founded by public employees and they remain the core of our membership. Supporting programs and events that are close to their hearts and enhance the state’s public treasures is a natural fit with our history of serving public employees.

Small Business and Entrepreneurship

We know what it’s like to be locally grown. We work and live in the communities we serve and believe in creating shared prosperity by supporting programs and initiatives that foster a vibrant local economy.
