Grants to this Grantee
for the Just Transition Fund  
The Just Transition Fund works to create inclusive economic opportunities for communities and workers hit hardest by the transition away from coal. Even prior to the pandemic, coal communities across the country were experiencing significant economic distress, as closures threaten economic stability by eroding the tax base and crippling local governments. COVID-19 has exacerbated all these stressors. A growing priority is to ensure national strategies, including economic recovery, are designed to directly alleviate economic distress in transitioning coal communities, act as a blueprint for transitioning oil and gas communities, and build support for durable climate policy in hard-hit areas. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
For Fund for Shared Insight  
Fund for Shared Insight is a funder collaborative devoted to creating pathways for foundations to listen to the people and communities they seek to serve through their giving. Since its launch in 2014, Shared Insight has grown to include 10 core funding partners, six "sidecar" contributors, and 116 additional Listen4Good co-funders; it has provided $29.3 million in funding to 528 organizations. An ongoing evaluation by ORS Impact continues to show that Shared Insight has strengthened nonprofit feedback practice and influenced the dialogue in the sector about the power of feedback to inform and improve nonprofits’ and funders’ work. This grant provides flexible, annual support to Shared Insight.
for support of the New Pluralists Collaborative  
The New Pluralists Collaborative, a fiscally sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, seeks a paradigm shift in how Americans relate to each other across our differences. To do that, the collaborative hopes to catalyze a sea change in the mindsets, values, skills, and behaviors we embrace as individuals, and the behaviors we enact in our institutions and communities, in order to foster a bigger sense of "we" and equip all of us to work well together in a more pluralistic democracy.
