Social Justice Grants Initiative 

The Social Justice Grants Initiative is intended to address the fundamental causes of systemic racism (ex. racial injustice, health disparities, voter suppression, educational access, environmental injustice and/or law and criminal justice reform) that impact Black/African Americans across our footprint.

Goals

The Social Justice Grants Initiative is intended to address the fundamental causes of systemic racism. Grants will support projects or programs that:

  • Advance social justice
  • Promote equity of opportunity
  • Foster diversity and inclusiveness

Community Grants

Community Grants will be awarded to support community-based programs that address a compelling localized need or opportunity with the potential for out-sized impact.
