Transformation’ no longer feels appropriate to describe where we are and how we got here. After spending the last few years listening and learning but also steadily moving our funding to support racial justice organizations, we are strongly anchored in our vision and mission. We set an ambitious goal at the beginning of this year – to move the majority of our funding to support racial justice organizations by the end of this year. We are thrilled to say that we not only met that goal, but we exceeded it. We now allocate more than 60 percent of our funding to support this work.
