Vision

The Village of Bennet and the surrounding area is a fast-growing community. It has a culture of responsibility, mutual respect, strong work ethic and community activities built around a hometown atmosphere. The human and monetary resources of the area will be used to engage the whole community in building on that foundation. The lives of community residents will be enriched to make it a stimulating and fulfilling community for all ages to achieve their aspirations.

To promote community pride and ownership, to inspire capital human investment in the community and to create a culture that will provide opportunities for all residents to enrich their lives.

 

Values

Collaboration. We reach out to other organizations in the community to leverage collective efforts and investment. We are inclusive of all ages and groups.

Respect. We believe in the inherent ability of individuals to effect change in their lives and we respect the collective thoughts and ideas of all individuals.

Stewardship. We carefully manage the resources made available to us and seek community input to assess the impact of proposed projects. The Foundation Fund is accountable and transparent to the community but adheres to all confidentiality standards that govern foundation activities.

Pride. We foster pride in the community and encourage residents to take ownership in projects which enhance their lives and the lives of future generations.

Innovative. We constantly seek ideas to lead and initiate projects that benefit the community. We are open to the changing needs of the community and are in a constant mode of assessing ideas that will move the community forward.
