Guiding Principles

We nurture the Sisters of Charity commitment to offer a caring response to those in need through education, health and social services.

We attempt to heal those areas of our society where justice has broken down and we seek opportunities to promote healthy cultural, social and ethnic diversity.

We take steps in faith to bridge gaps in human services, to meet unmet needs and to risk a caring response to challenging circumstances, aware that our endeavors may not always prove successful.

We partner with grantees and collaborate with like-minded foundations, leveraging funding where appropriate.

We act as responsible stewards of our resources, making grants in a strategic and timely manner and monitoring their disbursements and outcomes.
