It is with great pride and pleasure I present this annual report for your review. Sure, our team can point to any number of successes as to why we would feel delighted to share our year with you; by nearly every measure, it has been a fruitful year. And while we are thinking about numbers and dollars and metrics all the time, we work hard to remember that what we are really doing—when you dial in and take away processes and procedures—is working to enhance the well-being and flourishing of all whom we touch.
The Wesleyan edict to “do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can” may not be hung on all our walls, but it is our ethos. I hope when you read numbers, you understand that truly, we are about celebrating our heritage and changing as many lives for the good as we can.
