Values

  • We
    see our grantees as partners, and believe in cultivating and fostering
    collaborations and networks to catalyze innovation and change.

    are particularly interested in supporting faith-based partners, but
    remain open to a variety of partners who share our vision, mission and
    values.
  • With
    education at our core, we are interested in supporting holistic
    approaches to change and empowerment.
  • We
    prefer evidence-based approaches to social change, reflected by
    quantitative and qualitative indicators.
     
  • We
    believe cultivating strong leadership is essential to build capacity, leading
    to long-term sustainability and systemic change.
  • We believe the work generated by our partners should be shared with the broader community to help inform, educate and catalyze change. 
  • We have a commitment to good stewardship of our foundation’s resources. We expect the same commitment from our partners.
