JOINT MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR AND OUR PRESIDENT:
INTRODUCING THE FY 2018 PROGRAM PLAN
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—a place where diversity is celebrated and justice flourishes.
In developing our FY 2018 Program Plan, we have incorporated our learnings over the past 12 months. Our conversations with nonprofits and community leaders have reflected a heightened sense of anxiety and confusion about what the future might bring given our new political reality. The plan responds to these concerns—and addresses the imbalances we see across racial, ethnic, and socio-economic lines in our education, health, economic, and justice systems.
Additionally, with the release of this plan, the Foundation resumes accepting letters of inquiry on a rolling basis. To read the full message and access the FY 2018 Program Plan, click here.
