Equity

We operate through a lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion and we endeavor to understand the views of all.

Leadership

We bet on visionary leaders who can build strong organizations for the long term. We cultivate solid relationships with those leaders and strive to help them grow.

Impact

We support initiatives that create meaningful changes, often on a large scale.  We understand that changes of this magnitude are not accomplished overnight; they require patience and perseverance.

Boldness

We recognize that big ideas are needed to solve big problems. We are willing to forge new paths in service of our mission, make substantial investments, and take intelligent risks.

Partnership

We work closely with grantees and other other funders, and respond nimbly to identified needs. We foster collaborations among grantees and field leaders when appropriate, as rarely can widespread change happen by virtue of the actions of one organization.

Prevention

We believe that prevention is a more powerful force for change than remediation. We support organizations that work to address root causes.


A theme across all program areas is our intent to protect, enhance, and advance the human and civil rights of individuals.
