The Weingart Foundation’s FY 2018 Program Plan: Updated Grant Guidelines and Strategies

One year ago, the Weingart Foundation announced our full commitment to advancing social and economic equity. This commitment is inspired by a vision of a Southern California where all people can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential.

In developing our FY 2018 Program Plan, we’ve incorporated our learnings over the past year and revised our grant guidelines to reflect how we will use an equity lens to shape all of our grantmaking decisions.

Join us in a teleconference on Thursday, September 7 from 10-11:30 am to walk through our updated grant guidelines and hear highlights from the FY 2018 Program Plan. The teleconference will feature Joanna Jackson, our director of grant operations; Sara Montrose, program officer; and Joyce Ybarra, director of learning. This panel will be guest moderated by Martha Arévalo, executive director of the Central American Resource Center, who will pose some of the questions that her peers in the nonprofit sector may have about the Foundation’s direction and grant guidelines. Teleconference participants will also be able to ask questions and share feedback.

Early registration is recommended as space is limited. To register for the teleconference, click here.
