Purpose

Heartland Foundation’s purpose is to share the beliefs that:

  • Each of us is progress, each of us is potential, each of us is possibility.
  • Thriving, resilient, and sustainable communities are made up of citizens serving each other and working together for the greater good.
  • Citizens with higher levels of education are proven to be physically, emotionally, and financially healthier individuals.
  • Youth and adults who are empowered to effect positive change can make a real difference in whether a community declines or thrives.
  • Education is where empowerment begins and a commitment to lifelong learning is how it extends to ensure each generation carries our ever-evolving democracy forward.
