KFNA Mission Statement
“Serving Kingfield by creating connections, building community, and fostering engagement.”
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion
The Kingfield Neighborhood Association seeks to sustain and grow an organization that embraces and values the diversity of people and experiences within our community. KFNA recognizes the past and potential future impacts neighborhood associations can play in creating exclusionary communities and perpetuating racial and economic disparities. This includes people who rent, and people who identify as BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color), LGBTQ+, youth, and seniors. As we pursue our mission, KFNA will actively evaluate the impact our actions, positions and policies have on all members of our community.
More information regarding KFNA’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is provided in our Diversity and Inclusion statement.
Organizational Independence and Sustainability
The Kingfield Neighborhood Association seeks to build a sustainable and independent organization. KFNA values and embraces its role as an independent organization and will work to maintain independent governance and decision making power in pursuit of our mission and organizational sustainability.
Engaged and Empowered Community
The Kingfield Neighborhood Association seeks to sustain and grow an organization that engages, informs and empowers our community. KFNA will value and center its role as a connector, informer and collaborator with the community.
KFNA will work to accomplish its vision through the following strategies:
- Bringing people together through community events, education, and advocacy for issues that matter to those who live, work, and play in Kingfield.
- Fostering and supporting neighborhood leadership, organizing, and volunteering that reflects the diversity of the neighborhood and prioritizes under-represented groups.
- Actively sharing information through online and in-person communication channels, to keep neighborhood informed and to identify neighborhood priorities.
- Responsibly stewarding all money entrusted to the neighborhood by individual donors and grants.
- Supporting organization staff through a living wage, competitive benefits, professional development, and fair working conditions.
- Maintaining and improving processes, procedures, and organizational records to be a transparent and sustainable organization.
KFNA’s Diversity & Inclusion Statement (adopted March 2020)
KFNA is committed to being an equitable and inclusive organization that reflects the diversity and many identities in our neighborhood. We are stronger as an organization when we have a broad vision that includes diverse voices, ways of knowing, and ways of doing. We are committed to taking action to realize this vision. KFNA specifically seeks to foster the leadership and participation of people who neighborhood organizations have historically underinvested in. This includes people who rent, and people who identify as BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color), LGBTQ+, youth, and seniors.
