As we look towards a 2022 spend out, and after a decade of honing a trust-based investment approach with our partners, we are turning our focus outward to connect and communicate with our peers in philanthropy.

This strategy is highly informed by our grantee partners who have adamantly encouraged us to seed our story and trust-based practices in wider networks of investors and funders.

We hope that by the time we close our doors that…

  1. More funders and investors are explicitly valuing and resourcing relationship, dialogue and equity in their investments towards social change.
  2. More funders and investors provide multi-year, unrestricted funding.
  3. More funders and investors practice the kind of trust-based investing that demonstrates equity in what is often an unequal dynamic.
  4. A vibrant, interconnected network of investors and practitioners continue to bring attention to the importance of relationship, trust, and equity in our shared aspirations towards a world that is more equitable, sustainable, and well resourced.
