In close collaboration with the Miranda Family Fund, we are supporting communities of color-led health and human service institutions that share our commitment to addressing the immediate and long-term needs of historically underserved and marginalized populations. The needs in our communities are great and growing, and we look forward to continuing to work with these and other essential nonprofit organizations to provide relief and lay the groundwork for a just and sustainable recovery for vulnerable populations across the nation. We invite you to learn more about our slate of grantees – listed below under five strategic areas – and support their crucial work. These organizations are born, nurtured, and led by the very people who live and work in the neighborhoods hardest hit by COVID-19.
