In August 2016, the foundation released our first electronic newsletter titled, Raising the Bar, with the goal of highlighting the incredible and diverse grantees and communities we serve. Each newsletter includes updates on the grants we make, the work of our grantees, foundation activities, and the issues we care about. Please find previous editions below.
