At the conclusion of our pilot cycle of family learning followed by focused grantmaking, we made grants to two organizations who address this issue nationally and two who address it locally.

Nationally, we selected:

Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law (National)
Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law is developing its Legal Impact Network to build advocacy efforts for policy change based on learning from its legal aid work. The foundation’s grant is to help build the network’s communication capacity.

New York City Coalition Against Hunger (National)
NYCCAH is initiating a national campaign that will connect local anti-hunger efforts, develop grassroots support, and empower those in-need-to advocate for change.

Local organizations in cities where family members live were selected based on their impact and a desire of committee members to support local anti-poverty efforts.

Neighbors Together (Brooklyn)
Neighbors Together combines high-quality social service delivery with empowering its neighbors to advocate for themselves and their community.

Matan B’Sayser (Cleveland)
Matan B’Sayser helps Cleveland’s neediest Jewish residents with flexible support while preserving their dignity and anonymity.
