Our program director, Karla Miller, reflects on how the Foundation’s ongoing practice of learning from our grantees is inspiring our grantmaking this year and next.

Karla describes how conversations with our grantees helped us respond in ways that center racial equity and the needs, insights, and values of our grantee partners. From converting project grants to general operating support to adjusting or removing reporting requirements—we’re focused on providing what grantees need from us as they build on their communities’ strengths to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic and the centuries-long barriers created by systemic inequities.
