Engage - Connect - Empower - Thrive

The Advancement Foundation creates opportunities for dynamic community development by facilitating opportunities that empower citizens. TAF initiates, develops, and coordinates strategic action across all sectors of the community (nonprofits, business, government, and civic) in order to engage all citizens in transformative outcomes.

A key goal is to create cluster-focused business incubators that align strategically with Economic development plans. Cluster-focused incubators help to create critical mass of interconnected businesses, thereby helping local clusters thrive. ICIC Studies demonstrate these clusters grow three times faster. TAFs clusters provide budding entrepreneurs and emerging firms with mentoring and access to extensive networks and resources!
