Mission Statement

Our mission is to co-create a more just and equitable future by building partnerships with and investing in organizations making an impact in Metro Atlanta communities.

We do this by building trusting partnerships and investing primarily in nonprofits that focus their experience and expertise on promoting racial equity through their work.

(Metro Atlanta is defined as the 13 counties served by the United Way of Greater Atlanta.)

The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on initiatives and projects that build nonprofits’ capacity to do their work more effectively and efficiently.

Prior to submitting a full grant application, we require that each applicant organization submit a letter-of-intent to determine the potential eligibility of the request.
Trustees make their grant decisions based on materials prepared for them by Foundation staff. Each applicant will be notified in writing shortly after a decision on their proposal has been made.
