Grantmaking Reports

The Foundation's trustees and staff act as trustworthy and responsible stewards of its funds, seeking to direct resources with wisdom and compassion. The Foundation strives to ensure that its grantmaking efforts are relevant, effective and efficient. Our grantmaking has evolved over the years and we have adopted new approaches for support including Program Related Investments (PRIs), commercial loan guarantees and some limited equity investments.
