This value calls for careful management and distribution of community resources. It is about taking good care of the resources, both human and material, that have been invested with the organization. It is not only about resource allocation, but also about careful and deliberate modeling and direction setting for how resources should be established and used to serve and advance the interests of the broader community. It involves using resources effectively to meet the intended goals with minimal waste, allocating resources in a manner that is fair to all those who need them and that is sensitive to broader questions of justice in society. Stewardship also requires ensuring the long-term sustainability of the resources and clearly accounting for the decisions made about the use of the resources, including the value judgments on which resource decisions are based.
