NCG Welcomes our Newest Members | Part 2

Monday, June 8, 2015

2015 has been a busy year for NCG! This year we decided to expand our membership qualifications, and in doing so have some great members who are new to our community.  We wanted to take a moment to celebrate them — each week we will be featuring some of our new members in a continuing blog series.

Help us welcome board and staff of these organizations!

The ultimate mission of Health Care Services Agency is to provide fully integrated health care services through a comprehensive network of public and private partnerships that ensure optimal health and well-being and respect the diversity of all residents.


Arntz Family Foundation

The Arntz Family Foundation has the primary mission is to support environmental organizations, with an emphasis on those organizations that work toward systemic change and sustainability particularly where the areas of the environment and economic development come together.

The board of the foundation is composed of the Arntz children and their spouses. The board decided to focus on the environment, not just to honor their parents, but also because they feel that given the state of the world this is one of the areas needing the most support at this time. They have further refined their areas of interest to fund primarily organizations that focus on both the sustainability of the environment and the people living in the environment. Where support for both people and ecosystems comes together is the Arntz Family Foundation’s highest priority.

We are excited to introduce their Executive Director Nancy Peterson, the foundation board and staff to NCG.
