Our Values

Our efforts are shaped by core beliefs

The Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville is guided by the following core beliefs that shape our organization and our efforts:

  • We believe that we live in a great community.
  • We believe that when we invest in quality of life, that investment benefits all of us.
  • We believe that together we can accomplish more than any company, organization, or person can alone.
  • We believe that this community has the resources to address our most pressing problems.
  • We believe that when we invest in our nonprofit community, that investment can reap huge dividends.
  • We believe that when we take the time to talk to one another, we can more quickly develop solutions.

 

The ANNUAL #WeBelieveHSV Challenge

We believe that when we invest in our nonprofit community, that investment can reap huge dividends.

As a way to share our message and connect with and support those with similar core beliefs, we created the We Believe Challenge and awarded $10,000 in grant funding for local nonprofit organizations that support low-income members of our community.

Through the generosity of a corporate donor, we have funding to award a total of $15,000 (fifteen $1,000 unrestricted operations grants) to organizations serving low-income members of our community.

To accept the We Believe Challenge:

  • Create a brief, sixty-second video.
  • Show how an investment in your nonprofit organziation is an investment that can reap huge dividends.
  • Share at least one story of impact that demonstrates how your organization serves low-income members of our community. 
  • Post your video across your social channels and make the video "public" so that it can be shared. Be sure to tag the Community Foundation with @CFHuntsville and use the hashtag #WeBelieveHSV on your post.
  • Share and engage with your post to spread your message.

Deadline to share your#WeBelieveHSV video is now closed for the 2019 contest.

Some tips to make your #WeBelieveHSV video the best it can be:

  • Horizontal videos are optimal for sharing.
  • Shoot the video on location if possible.
  • Be aware of background sounds – traffic, crowds, etc. – that can compete with your message and use a mic if possible.
  • Be enthusiastic! You are doing great things for our community; don’t be afraid to share your story.

Rules and Guidelines:

  • This challenge is limited to organizations serving the residents of the Greater Huntsville area.
  • Even if your organization's mission is broader, this challenge must specifically spotlight the work that your organization is doing to serve low-income members of our community.
  • Videos must not exceed 60 seconds.
  • No copyrighted materials (music, images, etc.) may be used for this challenge unless you own the copyright or have a license to use the material for this purpose. Written permission must be obtained and provided upon requestfor all copyrighted materials.

The decision of the Grants Committee, appointed by the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville, will be final. The Grants Committee will review the videos in August and award fifteen unrestricted $1,000 unrestricted operations grants to local charities that serve the low-income members of our community.
