Community foundations are beginning to deepen and shift how they work, adopting an anchor mission that seeks to fully deploy all resources to build community wealth. Moving into territory relatively uncharted for community foundations, they are taking up impact investing and economic development — some in advanced ways, others with small steps.

Washington has the most upside-down tax system in the nation where low and moderate income households pay a far higher share of their income in state taxes compared to the richest households.
