Mission

Our mission is to energize the communities we serve.

We work to be in tune with local needs and priorities and are committed to investing wisely in programs that deliver meaningful, measurable and long-lasting results for generations to come.

We are particularly interested in promoting public safety and emergency preparedness. We face threats from wind, floods, snow, earthquakes, forest fires, and more – we want our community members to know how to be safe and prepared when facing these natural disasters.
