“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” – Malcolm X
Integrity. Everyone talks about it. Everybody claims to value it or to have it, but what is it really? At Funding Innovation, we define ‘having integrity’ as living according to our values. ‘Values’ are the things we are willing to stand for and are key to who we are and how we conduct ourselves. They are the things that we proclaim as being the foundation – the very bedrock – of our team, our organization and our future. We measure our integrity by how well we are living and breathing our core four shared values.
The greatness that resides within each one of us. Your greatness. We believe it arises the moment we stop believing we are powerless and start trusting that we have within us the power to change the world. We seek the best from ourselves and from those that we work with and serve.
Human connection. Higher-order civic engagement. Business isn’t business, business is people. We believe in elevating people’s lives and enhancing the connections between us. When we elevate one person, they in turn, naturally elevate others, creating an outwardly extending culture of inspiration, compassion and empowerment.
Caring is the most powerful marketing strategy there is. We believe we can change the world by creating simple, intentional acts of kindness. We strive to make a positive difference in the lives of everyone we meet. No matter what the moment brings, we aspire to find a way to bring hope, inspiration and elevation to the people around us.
We’ve set out to disrupt the current conceptions of what is possible and we strive to shift the status quo. We believe that possibilities and the potential for reinvention and innovation are all around us. We believe that serving our different communities exceptionally is at the heart of any successes we may have.
