Non-Discrimination Policy

The Roscommon County Community Foundation prohibits discrimination against current or prospective trustees, officers, employees and volunteers without regard to race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, physical or mental ability, pregnancy, veteran status, military obligations, and marital status. This policy applies to hiring, internal promotions, training, opportunities for advancement, and terminations.

The Foundation’s grant making policies reflect the belief that organizational performance is greatly enhanced when people with different backgrounds and perspectives are engaged in an organization’s activities and decision-making process. Thus, the Foundation actively seeks to promote access, equity and inclusiveness, and to discourage discrimination based on race, creed, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and other factors that deny the essential humanity of all people. This principle is a lens through which all the work of the Foundation is viewed.

The Foundation reserves the right to decline proposals from organizations the Board and staff of which do not reflect the diversity of the community in which they work.
