Leadership Reflects the Communities They Serve
We prioritize support for organizations led by individuals who represent and reflect the communities they serve.
Deep Relationships in the Communities
We support organizations whose leaders have developed deeply rooted relationships in the communities they serve.
Investments that Build Community Assets and Preserve Integrity
We support organizations and projects that create and advocate for infrastructure (re)investments that build community assets while preserving the integrity of existing communities for their residents.
Community Control Decisions that Affect Them
We support work that helps communities of color and low-wealth communities exercise more control over land use development and infrastructure decisions that affect them, including investments related to transportation.
We support groups that help our grantee partners develop the skills, knowledge and institutional and network capacity to advance their work.
