Philanthropiece supports communities to reach their identified goals. We work toward our mission by making sustainable partnership investments and fostering locally-shaped decision-making processes. We envision that communities are well-resourced and able to self-identify their aspirations, leading to a collective elimination of inequities, as well as an ability to thrive and experience joy.
Our work is deeply rooted in the unique needs of the communities we serve, and what we do emerges directly from the initiative of those who live there. We focus on uplifting changemakers who are at the forefront of projects, initiatives, coalitions, and movements that positively shift our collective view and experience. Since our start, we have believed that a connection between local and global communities makes us more aware, prepared, and impactful. While we are located in three places, we are united by a common approach and shared values.
Rooted in social justice, we accompany community members to co-create sustainable and just communities. Projects integrate economic justice, climate justice, immigration rights, Indgenous advocacy, BIPOC representation, LGBTQ+ allyship, and youth engagement.

“I want to make changes, even if they are just a grain of sand. I believe that those kind of small changes are what create a better world.”
