Our grants reflect an understanding that lasting social change is fueled by respect, inclusion, collaboration, and courage. We work with our nonprofit partners to test new and promising strategies, shape solutions, and build strong organizations with the leadership and the resources to help communities thrive.
As grantmakers, we have enormous respect for people and organizations working bravely for social change. We want to do everything we can to help make their work easier and bolder.Robert Joseph, Vice President of Programs
