We’re seeking to shift power and create more meaningful spaces in our work. Because of this, our grant programs will look a bit different in 2023 than in previous years.

To do this, we’re working on a new framework for our grantmaking process that will:

  • Make it easier for communities seeking equal access, opportunities, and resources to access funding.
  • Simplify and reduce application and reporting process on applicants and grantees.
  • Increase transparency and accountability in our decision-making.
  • Strengthen our relationships with current grantees through more funding, time, and flexibility. This supports sustained momentum and community-oriented timelines.

We are continuing to reimagine our approach to grantmaking to foster more equitable and trust-based approaches and practices for the long term.
