New Investments to Support Growing Areas of Need

We’re pleased to announce new investments of $1,020,000 to 17 nonprofit organizations advancing economic, healing, housing and racial justice for women and families in New York City and beyond. 

As the economic crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, we’re committed to deepening our support of emerging grassroots organizations that serve underinvested communities. Our grantee partners are ready for the times in which we live, as seen through their work that centers Black, immigrant and LGBTQ/TGNCNB  lives 

Our investments will provide general operating and program-specific support to ensure the impact of our grantee partners in their respective communities. They will also disrupt the negative impacts of gentrification on women and TGNCNB people and their families, through our Brooklyn Economic Justice Project.  

And consistent with our mission and values, our grantee partners demonstrate a sincere commitment to women’s leadership and racial equity: of 16 groups supported through our Early Investment portfolio, 12 have women of color in the executive director role and boards with more than 50% of leadership from Black, Indigenous and/or people of color.  

We’re proud to support our grantee partners as they implement community-led solutions to some of the most pressing challenges of our lifetime. Together, we will build a world that is more just and equitable for all.
