June 2023 Grant and Impact Investing Highlights
The Weingart Foundation committed more than $10 million in impact investments and awarded $9.4 million in grants to organizations working on critical social issues including economic, housing, immigrant/refugee, and disability justice. Over 72% of the funds awarded provide unrestricted operating support to nonprofits that deliver direct services, advocacy, and multi-sector or multi-ethnic collaboration to address multiple issues impacting communities of color.
In addition to grantmaking, we advance our mission through impact investments that support our commitment to equity. We committed $5M to Primestor Urban Vision Fund, managed by Primestor, a Latino-owned real estate firm. The funds will help develop mixed-use real estate including housing, healthcare facilities, community gathering spaces, and retail in underserved communities.
We also committed $5M to Female Founders Fund IV, which aims to bridge the gender gap women entrepreneurs face. Additionally, Weingart is providing a program-related investment loan of $500K to iimpact Capital Holdings, a Los Angeles-based real estate investment company focused on providing equity financing to women real estate developers of color creating affordable housing.
