This report examines the Foundation’s grantmaking in 2017 and a cluster of movement building progress from 2015 through 2017. This period brought tremendous challenges and threats to low-income communities and communities of color, but also opened opportunities for families to advocate for themselves.

In 2017, we commissioned a Grantee Perception Report to assess our impact and interactions and compare the results with other foundations. This report helps us be a more effective ally to grantees, as we work together to support a family-led movement for social and economic justice. Based on feedback, we identified two key areas to improve: consistency of communications and assistance beyond grant dollars.
