The Shenandoah Community Foundation seeks to enhance the quality of life for all citizens in Shenandoah County as our dynamic community continues to grow and change.
The Shenandoah Community Foundation’s board recognizes the future strength of this community rests firmly on its commitment to value, respect and fully embrace the richness of a diverse citizenry.
The Shenandoah Community Foundation values organizations within our community that reflect and promote diversity in Shenandoah County and surrounding areas. We seek grantees that incorporate diversity into their work and strive to create diverse governance boards, relationships with partner organizations and to serve diverse constituents.
The Shenandoah Community Foundation believes no person should be excluded from agency services, employment or volunteer participation because of age, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliation or religious belief, or for any other discriminatory reason.
The Shenandoah Community Foundation’s Unrestricted Grant Making Program requires grant applicants to hold similar standards and provide a written statement documenting their agreement. Grant applications from organizations known to have discriminatory policies will not be considered.
