​​​​​Our definition of equity 

​​We view equity as embedding fairness in the formal and informal systems, structures, and practices of our society, giving all people the opportunities and supports necessary to reach their full potential as human beings 

​​​Principles that guide us in our equity journey 

​​​Our work foregrounds racial equity but is not limited to it. We are concerned with the marginalization of people based on any element of their identity 
We believe achieving equity requires constructively addressing historical, structural, and systemic causes of racial and other forms of inequity and why they exist 
Specific definitions of equity will vary from one context to another. As a funder, we are careful to avoid imposing a single definition on grantees​​​
