Foundation-Driven Initiatives: Specific Requests for Proposal will be issued for these initiatives, and grants will be made through a competitive process.
Funding Collaboratives: The Foundation will pool its dollars with other private and public funders for specific programmatic purposes. The collaborative will then make grants through a competitive Request for Proposal process.
Loans: The Foundation will occasionally make a loan, instead of a grant, to an organization for a specific project or programmatic interest. The Foundation does not make loans to individuals or organizations for emergency needs.
Program-Related Investments: The Foundation will, on occasion, invest a portion of its corpus for the purpose of meeting a programmatic need as well as receiving a market-rate return on its investment.
