Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Commitment
We will put equity, diversity, and inclusion at the forefront of our granting requirements. We will challenge our grant recipients to acknowledge the makeup of our community and justify how grants will be used to accommodate people from different races, ethnicities, age groups, gender identities, sexualities, socioeconomic statuses, and disabilities. We do not hold ourselves up as virtuous. We will make mistakes. We have much to learn. But we respectfully encourage you to join us in working toward a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive community.
Environmental Sustainability Commitment
Environmental sustainability is meeting current human needs without jeopardizing future generations’ abilities to meet their own needs. Whether it is constructing carbon reducing buildings, using refurbished materials, or encouraging the use of recyclable materials, we have a responsibility to and will support projects and organizations that promote environmental sustainability. We know that social and cultural values influence attitudes and behaviors towards environmental sustainability, and we are committed to supporting organizations who actively participate in these conversations, develop good practices, and consistently lead in these efforts. We respectfully encourage you to join us in working toward a forward-thinking and environmentally sustainable community for generations to come.
