Justice, Equality and Opportunity
We strive to strengthen justice, equality and opportunity. Learn more about how we fund organizations that identify opportunities for policy change and address issues through research, public education and advocacy.
Women’s Economic Self-Sufficiency
We seek to make sustained change by supporting systemic and policy efforts to improve women’s incomes, job security and their ability to provide adequately for their families. Learn more about women’s economic self-sufficiency and how we have partnered with community foundations to create new statewide women’s funds.
