In reviewing proposals for Special Initiatives grants, the Foundation will only consider those organizations that primarily serve people with low-income and people who have been socially, economically or racially marginalized.
The Foundation will prioritize applications from organizations led by People of Color.
The Foundation aims to support as many organizations as possible, therefore, preference is given to organizations that they have not recently funded.
