Our five grantmaking strategies are Economic Security, Immigrant Integration, Education, Regional Planning and a Community Opportunity Fund that responds to time-sensitive community challenges.
Immigrant Integration Grantmaking Strategies
In our region, one-third of our residents are immigrants, nearly half of our workforce is foreign-born and close to two-thirds of those under the age of 18 are children of immigrants. Given this demographic reality, a new social model of immigrant integration - one that promotes mutual benefits for immigrants and their receiving communities while allowing newcomers enhanced civic participation and improved economic mobility - is critical.
