2019 Grants Processes Now Open, Plus an Explanation of Our Philosophy and Priorities

2019 Grants Processes Now Open, Plus an Explanation of Our Philosophy and Priorities

Our 2019 Major Grants Processes are now open! We are looking for organizations who bring an excitement and passion to their work, and who are working to break the cycle of poverty by addressing or removing the root causes of systemic barriers to health, safety, shelter and opportunity in the communities where we work and live

If that sounds like you, we'd encourage you to submit an LOI for our Spring 2018 Grant Cycle. We are offering grants for general operating support, program-specific support, and capacity building initiatives specifically.

Grant Partner Survey Results & Key Takeaways

As part of our commitment to learning from our grant partners and continuing to grow and adapt as an organization, we recently distributed a survey to all of our past grant partners asking for feedback about our process and approach. Twenty-five partners responded, completely anonymously, and in the interest of full transparency, we’re capturing the response summaries below and sharing them here. In addition to responses, we’ve highlighted throughout where we have concrete plans to make changes, and where we acknowledge we need to make such plans (but have yet to finalize anything).
