While we are committed to this new direction, we are also are acutely aware that this change may present specific challenges for many of our grantees and partners.
We are pausing grantmaking as we take time to listen and learn with East Side communities and determine and develop the specifics of our future work. We are enacting a thoughtful transition plan that provides time for partners who rely on us for significant support to adjust. We are also evaluating our philanthropic support programs, using this new direction as a guide.
These decisions are made with careful consideration to the very valuable work of so many organizations that are deeply committed to advancing racial equity.
At this time, we are not accepting new grant requests, and organizations that have a current or pending grant with the Foundation, including those who have been awarded transition grants, can access the portal and submit requested information.
If you have any questions regarding grants, reporting, or the portal, please contact Natalie Cook, Grants Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organizations that have a current grant with the Foundation can access the Expenditure Report Template to accompany interim or final reports.
