EDUCATION

We believe that education is a cornerstone for the community as a whole. High school graduates have higher earning potential, contribute more to their local economies, are more engaged in their communities, and are more likely to raise kids who also graduate on time. We believe that each and every child deserves the right to a quality education.

FINANCIAL STABILITY

We empower people to get on stable financial ground with proven methods like job training, financial wellness classes and more. The result is thriving communities where everyone has more opportunity to succeed.

HEALTH

We are building healthier, more resilient communities by promoting healthy eating and physical activity, expanding access to quality health care and integrating health into early childhood development.

MUSCATINE, Iowa —Charley Pierce, 11, Shealynn Blake, 10 and Kaleb Sosa, 10, took turns digging in the dirt, using shovels almost as tall as they are.

They had already dug several holes on Monday morning, planting three trees around Franklin Elementary. Before the morning was out, they and another team of fourth- and fifth-grade students would plant 10 trees, helping their school recover trees lost by the March tornado. READ MORE
