Dear colleagues, partners, and friends,
I want to update you on steps the foundation is taking during these uncertain times.
Beginning Wednesday, March 18, our office will be closed and our staff will be working remotely. You can find all our staff members’ email addresses on our website and reach us by email.
We recognize that current events might be severely burdening our grantees or creating new challenges. If you have concerns about your grant, please reach out to our grantmaking team.
We see this public health situation as a health equity issue and urge everyone to be mindful of those who will be most adversely impacted, both in the short-term and in the long-term response. To learn more about what we mean, read our recent blog post.
