Policy Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
As part of Heritage Fund’s funds promise committed to in August of 2020 to "spend the next 24 months studying and reflecting on the issues of racial equality and equity and determining how HFBC can make a positive impact on the community", our board recently approved the following Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement. This statement will serve as a guidepost to our organization as we continue doing the necessary and important work around racial equity in our community.
The Heritage Fund commits to establishing a community that values diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe our differences are a source of strength and that understanding, appreciating, and celebrating our differences will ensure a stronger and healthier community. Heritage Fund invites our donors, community partners, and stakeholders to invest in creating a forward-thinking community that is welcoming, respectful, and actively engaged in racial and cultural equity.
