We believe it’s both effective and respectful to engage the communities we serve in devising their own solutions, and to leverage data & research to guide investment.
We pursue solutions to complex issues that require diverse stakeholders to work together.
Our grant funding is one tool of many that we use to effect change. We fund innovative solutions that are addressing the root causes of poverty and effective work that addresses issues of racial disparity.
As we listen, convene, and fund, our role often allows us to see “gaps”. In these cases, we leverage our relationships, funding, and infrastructure to launch creative, cross-sector strategies.
