In early 2020, we announced a historic recommitment for the organization with its member institutions. Eighteen of the world’s largest foundations and financial institutions re-committed to work together for another three years with us.

Today they are explicitly putting racial disparities at the center of the collaborative and seeking to use their grants, loans and influence to close the racial income and wealth gaps in U.S.cities.
