In 2017, the Weingart Foundation announced our full commitment to equity. Joyce Ybarra, Director of Learning, examined our funding to assess how our commitment to inclusion and opportunity is manifesting at the Foundation.
The Weingart Foundation is committed to advancing fairness, inclusion, and opportunity for all Southern Californians. As part of this work, we formalized our Program Related Investment (P.R.I.) Fund, which allows us to expand the impact and scale of our grantmaking through low-interest loans. Rosa Benitez, Senior Program Officer, shared her perspective on the Foundation’s approach to P.R.I.s.
