To reduce poverty in our city, we must reimagine how giving is done and our own role to play. We’re moving beyond traditional philanthropy by adopting a Trust-Based model, which means giving unrestricted, multi-year funding and streamlined paperwork so our investees are freed up to concentrate on their mission. We focus on open communication to minimize power imbalances and help move the work forward.
It doesn’t stop there. We know that the more aware we are of the challenges, the more effective we can be in supporting the solutions. So we’re taking the time to listen and learn.
