Equity, justice, and sustainability serve as an overall framework for our grantmaking. Taken together, they help integrate our program areas so we can provide more holistic investments to support vulnerable populations who face a myriad of social, cultural, political, economic, and environmental inequities in their lives and communities. We aim to invest in solutions that can address the underlying conditions that perpetuate inequality, as well as solutions that support new paradigms to old problems. We believe complex social challenges must be addressed as part of an interdisciplinary, collaborative effort; partnerships, peer networks, and leveraging of our resources are essential to achieving our mission.
Our impact as a grantmaker correlates with the strength of the organizations and leaders we invest in. Therefore, if needed or requested, we provide flexible funding, general operating support grants, as well as other capacity building investments for organization to amplify their impact and reach.
