Seeds of Opportunity

Celebrating the visionaries who are advancing opportunity for people and communities
Creating lasting change in society requires leaders driven by a spirit of innovation, curiosity to explore what is possible and urgent willingness to be bold where others are cautious.

It’s how we seed success – it’s how opportunity takes root.

Seeds of Opportunity is a storytelling series published to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Walton Family Foundation. The series will recognize some of the partners we’ve supported over the years to build better schools, protect our environment and improve quality of life in our home region through culture, recreation and the arts. They are people and organizations who – through creativity, imagination and urgency – are advancing opportunity for people and communities at home and around the world.
