Our Core Values

Inspired by the Foundation’s founders, our core values form the fabric of our culture, support every component of our work, and paint a picture of who we strive to be every day.

These core values have been with us from the start. But over the past few years, we have taken time to revisit and refine them, explicitly defining what each value looks like in practice and behavior and ensuring they all reflect our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Our values articulate how we individually and collectively engage in our work — both internally among our team and externally with our partners and the communities we serve. We commit to embodying these values to strengthen our culture and — ultimately — better serve children and families.
