Our Approach

What We Do

Listen Locally

LOR listens first to understand the issues people are facing and the solutions they believe will work. Communities know the path for their future, we just help them get there.

Activate Solutions

We fund solutions and accelerate ideas. Our approach is always purposeful and always personal. Showing up in the ways our communities need us to when they need us to.

Share and Connect

We share what we learn about challenges and solutions and connect communities with advocates, experts, and other funders to amplify impact and quality of life across the region.

How We Help

In Taos County, New Mexico, an unlikely alliance of farmers, homeowners, elected officials, and advocacy groups came together under the shared interest of wildfire prevention. With LOR's support, the community developed a long term plan that will help the forestry economy, preserve agricultural traditions, and protect clean water.
