Regional Foundation: Greater Harrisburg Foundation
The charitable purpose of the project shall be to instruct the public about a program integrating science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics by championing 21st Century skills for life and working in local communities throughout the Greater Capital Region through a supportive ecosystem that builds the capacity of nonprofits & related causes. This purpose shall be achieved by establishing a local STEAM infrastructure that improves regional understanding of STEAM initiatives and programs and how they can be leveraged for the common good of individuals and communities. The Greater Capital Region STEAM Ecosystem will provide its members with strategic opportunities and resources to make a collective vs isolated social impact in their local places. Members will also be given access to expand and diversify their social capital through the ecosystem as they work together to build trust, reciprocity, information sharing and cooperation for collective impact and sustained success.
