2020 was an especially busy year for Maps Community Foundation. Regular initiatives continued while the Foundation quickly developed emergency responses to both the pandemic and local wildfires. At the same time, a new three-year strategic plan for 2021-2024 was developed. We are excited to share the new vision and plan with Maps members, as well as our wider Mid-Willamette Valley community.
The plan reflects growth in the scope of the Foundation’s work as well as an expanded community presence. Giving continues to be focused on Marion and Polk counties where 75% of Maps members reside.
The new mission, vision, core values, and key impact areas for the Foundation are:
Mission: “To enrich the lives of members and our community by investing in education, economic empowerment, and community vibrancy”
Vision: “Our vision is a thriving community where all people can access educational opportunities, attain financial stability, and live a healthy, vibrant life”
Core Values: Community, Impact, Equity, Integrity, Leadership
- Education – Shaping a Healthy, Thriving Future
- Economic Empowerment – Increasing Financial Health and Expanding Access to Services
- Vibrant Communities – Creating a Healthy, Thriving Mid-Willamette Valley Region
