How can we make a difference? Here are our strategies:
FUND ADVOCACY THAT LEVERAGES PUBLIC DOLLARS
Government investment must be part of the solution to ending homelessness. Small grants can leverage large public dollars. We support local, regional, and national efforts to increase public sector resources targeted to housing homeless and low income people.

SUPPORT POLICY WORK THAT PROMOTES SYSTEMIC CHANGE
We embrace organizations that engage in advocacy and policy work. Our grantees have impressive impacts when they shine a spotlight on unacceptable policies and work to change them. For examples, click here.
INVEST IN COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS
We fund coalitions and other collaborative efforts that will strengthen the voices for change. When groups come together to work jointly on an issue, their message is more powerful. For examples, click here.
TAKE RISKS AND SEED NEW INITIATIVES
We use our funding to seed and test new initiatives. Recognizing and sponsoring creative ideas on issues that we care about is part of our role as grantmakers. We look for opportunities to try to help transform an issue. For examples, click here.
