The Chesapeake Bay Trust has a mission to promote the public awareness and participation of all local residents in the restoration and protection of our region’s natural resources through its grant making. In order to achieve its mission and fully perform as an organization, the Trust commits to:
Fostering the inclusion of individuals and groups from diverse backgrounds including, but not limited to, age, gender, race, creed, ethnicity, national origin, religious beliefs, physical abilities, sexual orientation, military, citizenship, and socioeconomic status in all of the endeavors of the Trust.
Expanding the dialogue between diverse communities that lead to new collaborations and identify co-benefits of environmental and community projects
Partnering with grantees, donors, vendors, and others who also recognize the importance of increasing diversity in effort to restore and protect our natural resources and seek new ways to promote inclusion.
Learning and sharing best practices that increase the inclusion of all local residents in the ongoing effort to restore our natural resources and our communities.
