What We Fund
Our family grants are concentrated in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. We have a wide range of investments from both small organizations to large institutions. Each focus area has a diverse portfolio yet collectively they represent a snapshot of innovative leaders who are all trying to have impact in their respective areas. It allows us to have our finger on the pulse of what it means to fund people and ideas. There is no doubt that some of our investments are risky and diverse, but we appreciate the opportunity to CONVERGE Arts & Culture and Jewish Causes, or American Democracy and Arts & Culture. No single grantee operates in a vacuum; instead it is an ecosystem of interdependence and imagination. We look forward to forging new pathways among our grantees to accelerate their good work for the future.
