16 Jun Community Foundation statement on equity and inclusion

June 11, 2020

The Community Foundation of Elkhart County (CFEC) shares the pain our nation is feeling since
the senseless death of George Floyd. CFEC’s culture is built upon a foundation of respect and
fair treatment to everyone we serve and interact with. Furthermore, we believe the Community
Foundation of Elkhart County has a responsibility to take actions that combat inequality, bias
and exclusion.

Inclusion is one of CFEC’s four core values. We seek to elevate diverse voices and believe we are
most impactful when our organization and deliberations include people from varied
backgrounds, opinions, and perspectives. We are committed to nurturing open and frank
discussions so we may deepen our understanding and correct the inequities that exist within
our society.

We encourage you to join us on this journey.
