The Humboldt Area Foundation and the Wild Rivers Community Foundation announced a new shared Strategic Vision to guide our foundation efforts for the next ten years and beyond. The new strategic vision is an assertion of our values as well as a road map to guide how we invest and collaborate across our 4-county region. We envision a generational outcome of: A Thriving, Just, Healthy and Equitable Region.
This vision will be animated by four specific, decade-long goals:
Racial Equity
Thriving Youth and Families
Healthy Ecosystems and Environment
A Just Economy and Economic Development
