Diversity is a core value at The Community’s Foundation. We are passionate about building and sustaining an inclusive, equitable, and accessible environment for all staff, board, committee members, volunteers, donors, fund advisors, scholars, and grant recipients. We believe every TCF stakeholder enriches our diversity by exposing us to a broad range of ways to understand and engage with the world, identify challenges, and to discover, design and deliver solutions in our community.
Diversity is achieved by welcoming all people, and embracing all the ways that they are different and the same at the individual and group level.
Equity is achieved by ensuring the fair and just treatment of all members of a community.
Inclusion is achieved by ensuring that all individuals feel that they are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and that they are an important part of the whole.
Access is achieved by eliminating barriers and thereby allowing any person or group to use resources regardless of their ability status.
