​​ advancing progressive ideas and actions


We are a small organization but we “fight above our weight”! Our grants, fundraising and local organizing activities give a boost to social justice, anti-racist and anti-sexist projects that are otherwise ignored by larger foundations. We aim to affect change at the grass roots level where we can have the most impact. Our track record speaks to the success of our approach.

​Our contributions provide the seed money and resources the recipients need to grow and thrive. We also maintain long-term ties with many of the groups we support. We are committed to ongoing support and follow-up discussions. The Foundation benefits as much as our recipients from these exchanges as we constantly seek to improve our own work.
