These are uncertain times around the world. We are all trying to make sense of how to live during a pandemic while supporting our communities. What is certain for us is that we are committed to the leadership of grassroots organizations in this moment and into the future. They have been leading long-standing work to advance equity and justice while ensuring the safety and long-term resilience of frontline communities for years. They have the clearest view of solutions.
With Covid-19 surely adding to our grantee partners’ already-increasing workload, we are extending support to navigate and address emerging needs. We will continue to provide general operating support, multi-year grants, and simplified reporting. We encourage our partners to reach out to us with needs and concerns, and we will do our best to provide support and make accommodations. While our staff has shifted to working remotely, our grantmaking and operations will continue uninterrupted. We will check back in as the environment settles.
In hope and solidarity,
