Our philanthropic practices reflect our belief that systemic change is a result of deep, personal, and community-centered work. We take a time-intensive, relational and trust- based approach to knowing and supporting our collaborators.
Our Guiding Goals
Promoting Just Culture
Often, the inherent weight of the issues our collaborators are addressing – environmental injustice, climate change, pollution, food insecurity and more – causes organizers and employees to sacrifice their own well-being for the cause. We believe our collaborators should have healthy, supportive and safe environments in which they can effectively work to cultivate social good without sacrificing their own health. We aim to help our collaborators attain the holistic support they need to thrive, which includes providing general operating support, multi-year grants, and capacity-building support.
