Our Commitment to Underserved Communities
Building the Capacity of Community-based Organizations in Underserved Communities
In 2008, the Weingart Foundation developed an initiative with several components aimed at increasing our effectiveness in creating access, building capacity, and supporting leadership development among grassroots and minority-led organizations serving low-income communities throughout Southern California. This is the third report on our grantmaking activities related to this initiative.
To address the key issues of building capacity and supporting leadership development among minority-led and grassroots organizations, the Weingart Foundation undertook several new approaches and deepened commitments to established grantmaking programs.
