ֱ Equity Fund

At ֱ, our philosophy to building ֱ equity centers on a strategic approach that leverages our funder, advocate, and provider roles to maximize impact in our three focus areas of Food & Nutrition, Chronic Disease Prevention & Management, and Supportive Housing. 

However, we understand that in addition to our three Focus Areas, there are many ways to support community health and build ֱ equity. As such, ֱ created the ֱ Equity Fund to respond to timely and critical projects that fall outside our Focus Areas, yet support the health and well-being of communities disproportionately impacted by health disparities.

ֱ Equity Fund

Within the ֱ Equity Fund, ֱ will consider the following:

  • Projects that fall outside of our Focus Areas, yet strive to address health disparities. Projects must clearly demonstrate a connection to health, as evidenced by research and/or data. 
  • Projects that prioritize communities and/or neighborhoods disproportionately impacted by health disparities, as evidenced by research and/or data
  • Timely and critical projects that if not addressed will contribute to worsening health disparities impacting high-need communities. 

ֱ Equity Fund projects will be considered contingent on funding availability, as our main priority will continue to be funding projects that fall within our Focus Areas.
