Strategy & Budget

Each fall, our team engages in a participatory planning process that encompasses reflecting on our learning, goal setting and grantmaking budgeting.
 

2021 Strategic Direction

Our primary goal this year is to remain steady in our core grantmaking portfolios while continuing to respond to the ongoing public health and economic crisis. We anticipate continuing to provide significant COVID-19 responsive funding in addition to our core grantmaking budget. In addition, we have moved immigration, economic opportunity and portions of the housing advocacy grantmaking, previously strategic opportunities, into our core portfolio for 2021 and beyond.

Past Years' Reports

Our primary focus in 2020 was to respond to the emerging public health and economic crisis caused by COVID-19. This was an incredibly challenging year for our grantee partners and the families they serve, in ways that we couldn’t have fathomed as the year began. In addition to maintaining all of our core grantmaking during the year, we did several rounds of COVID-19 responsive grants to our partners to help them address the unprecedented demand for services they saw throughout the year. We also participated in various community response funds designed to provide cash and rental assistance to families around greater Silicon Valley. We wrapped our final grants for the 2020 Census, and transitioned our grantmaking focused on immigration, housing advocacy and economic opportunity into our core portfolio starting in 2021.
