A Message from our Board of Directors on Racial Justice

September 22, 2020

We’ve all been moved by events over the past several months that were triggered by enduring and systemic racism in our society. We wholeheartedly condemn injustice and intolerance.

We believe in doing our part to promote a more inclusive society. We don’t and won’t tolerate racism, discrimination or injustice in any form, in our businesses, personal lives, or philanthropic activities. ​

We’re listening, learning and thinking about the next steps we need to collectively take to do our part in making the world more tolerant and inclusive. There is much work to be done.

Our intent is that these words become more than statements – that along with our values they form the defining elements of our culture, guide our giving, and direct how we behave every day.

We commit to using our resources to help build a more equitable, sustainable, and just society.

Together we will continue to be respectful, responsive, and inclusive, and do our part to build partnerships that reflect these same values.
