Our Focus

Our Focus

We strengthen the building blocks of opportunity.

Education, income and health form the foundation that allows each of us to reach our full potential. All three are essential and interconnected. You need a good education to get a good job. You need a good job to provide for yourself and your family. You need good health to keep your good job and enjoy an active, productive life.

Together, we’ve put opportunity in the hands of more than 50,000 Quad Citizens last year. More of our kids are ready to succeed in school, more students are graduating prepared for a career or college, more families are financially stable, and more neighbors are living happy and healthy lives.
