2022 - $10,000

This funding will support anti-racism and diversity, equity, and inclusion work by Alliance for Living, a nonprofit organization in New London County that serves people facing issues including HIV, homelessness, and substance use disorders. The organization will use this grant to create a racial equity task force to implement diversity, equity, and inclusion programming for employees, volunteers, and board members.

This grant was awarded as part of The Sanford Cloud Awards for Diverse Advocacy, Policy, and Equity, designed to advance health equity for people of color by investing in initiatives led by graduates of the foundation’s Health Leadership Fellows Program and Academy for Health Equity Advocacy and Leadership. The award is named in honor of Sanford Cloud Jr., the foundation’s former board chair.
