Our team (Cassie Bean, Kevin Bennett, Amelia Corl) is prioritizing bold and transformative opportunities that center voice, choice, and agency of those most marginalized in our community.
Senior Program officer and Twin Cities Racial Equity Lead Kevin Bennett shares, “GHR’s work is centering vibrant Black and Indigenous futures. We know that centuries of systemic racism have resulted in the disparities that characterize Minnesota today. We believe that new narratives are possible when we lead with love, partner boldly, and reimagine what is possible.”
The Foundation recently approved grants to the following organizations:
All Square: $1.05M over 2 years to provide operational support for the launch of The Legal Revolution, the first of its kind, Prison-to-Law pipeline, providing ABA accredited access to legal education and career opportunities for incarcerated individuals.
Center for Economic Inclusion: $1M over 2 years to strengthen operational capacity and deliver capital investments to Black and Indigenous businesses.
Northside Funders Group: $100k over 2 years to contribute to a collective pooled fund for grantmaking to BIPOC organizations in North Minneapolis.
Nuns and Nones: $300k over 2 years in support of the Nuns & Nones Land Justice Project – a new initiative that expands opportunities for Sisters to reimagine the future of land in their possession in a creative manner, in alignment with their charism and leadership in climate and racial justice.
Building on GHR’s rich tradition of innovation and deep relationships, we continue to examine, learn, and explore more ways to be of service to people and their limitless potential for good.
