About the Fund: Mission

The mission of the Walter & Elise Haas Fund is to help build a healthy, just, and vibrant society in which people feel connected to and responsible for their community.

A healthy, just, and vibrant society is one in which individual members feel a personal stake in the well-being of the whole, and have equal access to the tools and opportunities that enable them to fully participate in community life. Such a society requires respect for diversity, addresses social and economic inequities, and allows its members to exercise both choice and responsibility. A solid foundation of community institutions and organizations with strong leadership supports the realization of this vision.
