It is the simple, yet profound, first word of our “why” – TOGETHER
- that helps us transform lives.
Together, we serve and inspire to transform lives.
In my first year as the Director of the Northwest Foundation, I wanted to determine what actually transforms lives.
As it turns out, research
demonstrates that the strength of our relationships and networks of support improves our lives dramatically in myriad ways – from short and long term health outcomes, all the way to upward economic mobility.
It is the simple, yet profound, first word of Northwest’s Why Statement – TOGETHER – that will help us to transform the lives of the children we serve. This is so much more than offering financial services or giving out scholarships. It is a commitment to build lasting relationships with our members, our employees, and, most importantly, the people we serve so that all of our lives improve together in the process.
I hope that you will take the time to read about some of the relationships we are building in the Northwest community and about the lives we hope to transform through our service together. Thank you for all of your support in my first year at Northwest.
