We stand with Black and Indigenous communities. We know that deep racial inequities exist in every area that Medina funds, and we are committed to our own learning and to supporting our nonprofit partners that provide critical services and work tirelessly to dismantle systemic racism.
A Note About COVID-19
Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve seen how organizations are rising to unbelievable challenges, going above and beyond, and showing up every single day. Even when everything feels so overwhelming, you are all making a difference. Thank you. The Medina Foundation is continuing our work of making general operating grants and supporting basic needs and essential human services. In 2020, we contributed to fourteen of the COVID-19 Rapid Response Funds in the regions where Medina funds, streamlined processes for our grantees, and increased our grantmaking budget. In 2021, we made unsolicited grants to our youth-serving grantees to aid in transitions in serving youth and their families. In 2022, we continue to look for ways to meet the needs of our grantee partners and support our communities in the challenges we still face. We will all get through this together.
