The Foundation’s Board of Trustees and leadership has been working hard to define our new mission statement and set strategic priorities that will define the next chapter of the Foundation’s work. The Foundation works with our mission in mind each day, newly defined as aspiring to:
Create transformational community impact by inspiring philanthropy and engaging the region.
In addition to defining an aspirational new mission, Kristin Todd, president & CEO, has dedicated her first year to understanding the needs of the community and the strengths of the Foundation. Her focus on community listening has informed a new strategic framework that paves an exciting path for growth and greater impact in the region. To this end, the Board recently approved an aspirational ten-year strategic vision, and we are gearing up for dramatic growth and impact.
The Foundation’s bold ten-year vision is to create positive, meaningful, and lasting change throughout Northern Colorado by 2032 by:
- investing $225 million in community grantmaking,
- growing assets under management to $500 million, and
- becoming the “go to” institution to address critical challenges.
With board input and staff collaboration, each strategic priority (see graphic) has been broken into several goals with clear action steps designed to support the Foundation’s work to create meaningful change in our community.
