Our Approach

Moving Ideas into Action

We invest in meaningful initiatives that help the citizens of Lakewood and surrounding communities lead healthier lives. To accomplish this, we offer grant opportunities to nonprofit organizations that provide programs and services directly aligned with our mission and strategic area of focus.

As a Foundation built on a legacy of caring, we are committed to taking our community-centric approach one step further. We believe success starts by exploring unmet needs and opportunities, convening expert sources – including our directors – for broader understanding, and amplifying ideas through greater collaboration with community partners. As such, we are especially interested in organizations that work with others towards a common purpose and grant requests that build on proven strategies, replicate successful existing models, or are the start or next phase of a promising model or practice. Interconnected paths will accelerate philanthropic progress and lasting impact.
