Our Mission

“Improving the lives of individuals in the communities we serve through health and education initiatives.”

Foundation Update
In January 2018 the Todd and Shari Nelson Family Foundation Inc. began a re-evaluation of its Vision and Mission. During this important assessment what surfaced time and again was apparent; the Nelson Family is community minded and community supportive. 

The Foundation embraces its history and stands committed to supporting its community roots. The Foundation’s updated Mission reflects this commitment. We express our grateful appreciation to the many respected businesses, organizations and individuals who join in supporting its heart-felt family values.
