In 2022 our grantmaking honored existing relationships and commitments, was proactive, and engaged new organizations in new ways.
In 2023, we continue to build on what we learned from community organizations:
Not all communities have equal access to resources and supports. These disparities affect health and wellbeing and can become more pronounced as we age. The Foundation recognizes that those most affected by inequities are in the best position to define the problem, design appropriate solutions and describe success.
Community-led change, especially at the policy and systems level, requires coordination and collaboration. This includes everyone within a community setting—community-based organizations, municipalities, health care providers, social service agencies, businesses and consumers, and importantly, users of programs and services. Organizations that take an integrated approach to address food security and other fundamental needs—and to build thriving, welcoming communities—achieve better outcomes.
Our work prioritizes equity and inclusion, engagement, and community-led solutions.
Our grantmaking team sets aside time for community conversations each week. Select a time that is convenient for you.
