Our Grantmaking

Focused Investments

Our systems were created without consideration of many identities and communities in Kalamazoo County. As a result, some groups in our community face extraordinary barriers to the resources needed to live a healthy, safe, prosperous life.

This reality calls out for us to reimagine our work with a deep focus on racial equity and racial justice. Together, we can address the most urgent issues in our community.

And because education is a pathway to prosperity, we prioritize work at the intersection of racial equity and education.
