Committed to creating more inclusive, equitable, and balanced communities.

We envision a better world where all have equal merit, equitable opportunity, and are empowered to thrive.

See our impact in our 2021 Annual Impact Report.

Like the organizations we seek to support, we are purposeful yet nimble. We intend to listen, learn, and regularly improve our own methods and strategies, to ensure we truly help not hinder.

Through 2021-2022, our focus is to support partners working to reduce racial inequity and inequality in the United States. We fulfill this focus by distributing grants to organizations in this space who align with one or more of our three core values:


Empower Through Education

We believe that access to quality education is a fundamental component to a more equitable society.


Transform Through Technology

We believe that technology, innovation, and data hold the key to faster and more formidable change.


Action Through Autonomy

We believe that people can make their own choices, and prioritize end-recipient preferences over those of ourselves or our partners
