Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our vision: a vibrant community celebrating art and culture, treasuring our desert environment, assisting those in need, and engaging in lifelong learning and healthy lifestyles.

Key Strategies:
-Enhancing the community through programs, activities, encouraging collaboration, enhancing capacity and providing leadership regionally within the desert foothills.
-Fostering a high performance board, staff and volunteer organization.
-Ensuring sustainability of the FCF mission (providing resources for culture, education and community service).

Since 1986 FCF has started, incubated, encouraged and collaborated with desert foothills organizations to ensure that resources are available in our community when needed. Although our role has played out in a multitude of varying ways over the last couple of decades, FCF's ability to adapt to changing needs and bring the community together to address needs, has remained strong. We continue to draw our community together to look to the future while supporting programming to enhance current needs. FCF looks to the big picture, the future, and yet also serves current needs across our mission and geographic area of service -- the desert foothills.

FCF recently completed a Community Needs Assessment. We are working with community leaders and organizations to develop a plan of action to prioritize and respond to the findings.
We continue to foster and incubate programming in cultural, educational opportunities and community service.
We are exploring potential for improved facilities for current and future program needs. As in any growing community, the potential and need for added programs outweighs the resources available to meet those needs.
