Core Values

Opportunity – We recognize that access to equitable education and opportunity, regardless of socio-economic status, is critical to community vitality. We are committed to working alongside community partners to remove barriers and address disparities that prevent individuals from realizing their full potential.

Empowerment – We believe that dignity for all people is found through the empowerment of all people. For individuals to be engaged in their neighborhoods and communities they must have the education, tools and resources necessary to do so.

Impact – We value the work of our partners in our community, know that we are stronger together, and strive to create collaborative interventions with long-term measurable impact and meaningful change.

Legacy – We are committed to honoring the legacy of philanthropy set forth by family patriarch, William H. Darr, who has established a culture of leading humbly, ethically and transparently.
