Signing On: Philanthropy’s Promise
The Fund has signed on to Philanthropy’s Promise, the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy’s initiative which values a focus on marginalized communities and high-impact, socially just strategies that promote positive social change.
By signing, we are not just underscoring the alignment of our values with a diverse group over 150 of big and small private foundations, corporate foundations, community foundations and other public grantmaking charities from across the country, we join a multi-year effort to implement two strategies to
- Prioritize grant dollars to address the unique needs of underserved communities (Targeted Universalism), and
- Invest in advocacy, community organizing and civic engagement to address the root causes of social problems and promote equity, opportunity and justice (Policy & Civic Engagement).
