(Seattle) A major outcome of the MAVIN Foundation's two year organizational assessment and strategic planning process was identifying the areas where future programming will concentrate. Today, they were announced as Health, Education and Policy.

Matt Kelley, MAVIN Foundation's founder and president described the importance of the more focused approach to future programming. "MAVIN was started as a magazine, but quickly expanded into a diverse array of health, education, youth leadership and community building projects. As we looked around to see the growing needs of the mixed heritage community, the Board and staff felt we should focus our efforts on a limited number of areas where we can have the greatest impact."

Over the next several weeks, MAVIN Foundation will issue additional press releases to unveil details about MAVIN's next generation of exciting new initiatives to serve mixed heritage people and families across the nation!

MAVIN Foundation builds healthy communities that celebrate and empower mixed heritage people and families. Since 1998, MAVIN has invested over $2.5 million into innovative and award-winning projects focused on mixed heritage people, transracial adoptees, and multiracial families.
