What do you mean by “initiatives”?

22 June 2012

We structure our grantmaking around initiatives rather than “program areas”. These initiatives are varied in form, but all reflect our commitment to building authentic partnerships with grantees and other funders and to taking calculated risks. Each of our initiatives has a specific, planned strategy. The initiatives work toward outcomes we can leverage to move our vision and our goals forward. To this end, we work in ways that we believe our involvement and resources can have real impact. We invest in innovative strategic grantmaking that we hope will lead to societal transformation in the near- and long-term.
