We are community lead in everything we do. We want our Foundation to be the vehicle for creating a sense of belonging and trust in diverse communities and a way for people to come together.

We are here to do things differently and that means being bold in the way we approach our Foundation goals. We come at everything with an adventerous attitude and we are not afraid to fail.

Conscious

We are open minded and challenge our own thoughts and beliefs that are engrained in society.We take ownership of our actions, are considerate to others, and strive to be inclusive in all that we do.
