Philanthropy Reimagined

Strategic-Grantmaking entrenched in community-identified needs.

The leadership of non-profit organizations frequently does not reflect the communities they serve, and traditional philanthropy often overlooks grassroots organizations that need funding to enact immediate change. In our effort to develop powerful and sustainable movements for BIPOC leaders and their communities, we have structured our foundation to deliver strategic and flexible grants through spending down our assets.

Our partners' vital work informs and influences our grantmaking strategies.

Our funding decisions are based on a deep and genuine belief in our partner's ability to carry out the work most needed in communities affected by systemic and interpersonal violence. We believe the leadership and vision of those directly affected should be amplified and honored through community-led solutions.
