International Development Group
The International Development Group Mission Our mission is to promote positive change in people’s lives and to build and enhance the communities in which they live. Our Foundation has an especially strong interest in supporting innovative endeavors leading to better circumstances for low-income youth and their families. In carrying out its mission, the Foundation identifies critical issues that resonate with its trustees, establishes goals in these areas, and supports, through grants and related activities, focused efforts to achieve these goals. It seeks to learn from its investments, share what it has learned, and inspire others in the public and private sectors to make similar commitments. The Foundation’s geographic focus is on communities where members have deep roots: Maryland; Maricopa County, Arizona; and Beaufort County, South Carolina. We also support two affiliated funds: the Seattle Falcons Youth Foundation and the Mountain Sky Fund in Montana.
