We are advocates, developers, creators, and funders building a true American Democracy through four core programs:
HVA ADVOCACY FUND
We support organizations that advocate for social justice and the protection of fundamental rights. We provide funding to those fighting for true democracy locally, nationally, and worldwide. We provide resources to groups and individuals so they can better hold government accountable. We believe that a true democracy depends on strong advocacy organizations and individuals that can stand up for human rights and dignity.
We invest in communities that support democracy in pursuit of the common good. For example, we build mixed-income housing and spaces for education and child care programs, entrepreneurs, and community spaces for arts and culture. We believe that democracy is stronger when we can all live and grow together as neighbors.
ARTS & LETTERS
We support artistic and cultural expressions that highlight pressing social issues by providing engaging experiences that inspire individual and collective action. The program supports individuals and organizations whose work advances the promises of true American Democracy.
We identify and support organizations that further our mission by advancing the goals of our HVA Advocacy Fund, Common Good, and Arts & Letters programs.
