Message from Fred Ali, President & CEO:
Introducing the FY 2019 and FY 2020 Program Plan

I am excited to share the Weingart Foundation’s Program Plan for FY 2019 and FY 2020. In the two years since the Foundation announced our full commitment to equity, our work has continued to evolve and deepen. We seek to strengthen the organizational effectiveness of nonprofits that provide critical services as well as those engaged in advocacy, community organizing, and movement building. We prioritize our resources for those organizations, collaboratives, and coalitions working in underserved communities of color that are impacted by persistent poverty.

Our Plan is informed first and foremost by those working on the frontlines. Over the next two years, we will maintain our core strategies—including our longstanding commitment to multi-year Unrestricted Operating Support. At the same time, we’re adding two new areas of special focus: the 2020 Census and youth organizing. We are also developing a leadership program for movement builders.
