The Foundation's granting programs are comprised of:
- Foundation initiatives, which include strategic granting portfolios and programs that have been created, or co-created by the Foundation. These are often long-term, sizable investments.
- Grants to organizations, which are grants to outside community organizations to support change that aligns with our granting philosophy.
All of our initiatives share some common characteristics: all are based on engaging people directly in learning and problem-solving, all have qualities of innovation in their approach, and all seek not simply to solve problems, but to transform systems.
Optimally, our grants to organizations fit into our larger Foundation initiatives to coordinate collaboration among our grantees and ensure greater impact.
