BUILDING COMMUNITY POWER FROM THE GROUND UP.
Libra Foundation funds organizations led by those most impacted by systemic oppression – largely communities of color that have experienced chronic underinvestment. Our guiding principle is that those closest to the problem understand those issues best and are most equipped to build and implement solutions. Our approach to philanthropy is to move money to groups building BIPOC power.
We prioritize multi-year, unrestricted grants to frontline organizations working to bring transformational change in their communities. Over time, we build relationships of trust with grantee partners, looking to their lived experience and wisdom to guide the work and freeing them from red tape and paperwork. Our approach is intersectional: we bring together strategies that cross portfolio lines.
