Welcome to Our New Website

by David Hiller, President and CEO

One of the things I love most about working at the McCormick Foundation is the opportunity to learn something every day from the amazing people in our community who are working to help others. Coming together, sharing ideas, and joining effort – that is a true learning community. And it’s the only way to tackle the really hard issues our communities face, whether in education, healthcare, public safety, you name it.

At our Foundation, we all believe in lifelong learning and in active participation in the civic life of our community. It’s never been more important than it is today that we as citizens get off the sidelines and engage in constructive debate — and work together toward real solutions.

That’s the spirit in which we launch this new website, with its sense of shared community and commitment to progress. We hope that you will find it to be a valuable source of information, as well as an opportunity to air your thoughts and share with us your knowledge. We will tell the stories of people in the community who are making things better. We will learn from what works, and also from what doesn’t.

And we want you to be part of this. We invite you to take a few minutes to explore this site, as well as our social media pages. Then join the conversation. We would love to hear from you.
