Our Approach

Following in the generous and visionary footsteps of Joseph “Joe”, Rebecca, Harvey “Bud”, and Lyn Meyerhoff, we make our funding choices by choosing opportunities for investment where we believe our grants can make a genuine difference and leverage investments from other funders. We believe relatively modest grants can have a large impact as can the act of convening our grantees, which costs little, but creates powerful connections and collaborations.

We invite you to learn about our approach and practices. Explore a sampling of our current and past work and see our recent grants through the grant mapping pages.
