OUR APPROACH

GRANTMAKING

We invest in the on-going learning and development of our core grantee organizations and leaders. Our holistic and interdisciplinary approach to grantmaking is strengthened by making multiple-year general operating grants and also by offering multiple year grants and support for organizational transformation and leadership development through our Renewal & Resilience program.

OUR VALUES
In our grantmaking, we are guided by the following values:

Diversity, Inclusion and Equity

We believe in the value of diversity defined broadly—including people of color, women, LGBTQ communities, people with disabilities as well as regional diversity—and value the voices and leadership of populations that have historically been, and continue to be, marginalized in our society and underrepresented in leadership roles. We also believe in promoting equity—justice and fairness—and seek leaders and organizations who are working to address the root causes of injustice. Finally, we also emphasize inclusion to ensure that power and decision making is shared. We are guided by these fundamental values and seek out organizations whose work reflects them;

Collaboration and Partnership

We believe in the power of connections between our program areas and funder colleagues and in the importance of long-term engagement, knowing that thoughtful and transformative work takes time;

Courage

We seek programs and policies commensurate with the crises we face, so we encourage our grantees—and ourselves—to be creative and bold rather than cautious and incremental;

Learning

We support ongoing growth and development of leaders and organizations by encouraging reflection and risk-taking, knowledge seeking and innovation.
