Foundation Embarks on New ‘Equitable’ Approach to Grant Making

This article describes the unique “restorative economics” approach of the $445 million Kataly Foundation. Using both grants and investments, the idea is to provide capital to groups in areas that have been shut out of the economic mainstream and then make sure any investment returns stay in those neighborhoods. That often means building relationships with smaller organizations led by Black and Indigenous people and other people of color who haven’t received much philanthropic support and providing grant dollars to leaders with a vision.
