2023 Strategic Direction

As we all adapt to a changing landscape brought about by COVID-19, we will transition our responsive grantmaking related to the pandemic to refocus on and strengthen our core grantmaking. This includes augmenting general operating grants for several long-term partners and honing our capacity building support to address a range of organizational and programmatic priorities. After taking some initial yet fruitful steps to more explicitly incorporate racial equity into our work, we will continue to do so by examining how to elevate our commitment across each of our program areas and strategies. Finally, we will continue learning through grantmaking with our existing initiatives and chart a course for exploring new areas of focus.


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.
