Innovation Fund

$1.5 million in grants for 10 bold nonprofit programs.

Launched in December 2021, the Innovation Fund supports promising, creative approaches to longstanding social issues.

In September 2022, we announced the 10 organizations selected to receive total of $1.5 million in flexible, multiyear funding. Priority was given to organizations that work alongside marginalized communities, address the needs and aspirations of those communities and are committed to elevating leaders of color. 

Applications were evaluated by a committee of experts, including directly impacted community members. 

We are no longer accepting applications for the Innovation Fund. For questions about the Fund, please contact

Priority areas:
  • Youth and family mental health
  • Early intervention efforts in schools
  • Public health approaches to reducing gun violence
