Our theory of positive change is straightforward. Just as we celebrate the interconnections among our funding priorities, we seek to build interconnections among our grantees and support groups that leverage relationships to enhance their influence.

  • We form vision-driven partnerships to create issue campaigns, like Seed
    Matters, that will address urgent challenges, take root, and thrive.
  • We foster collaboration among experts and stakeholders to create fertile
    ground for innovation and help strengthen the case for change.
  • We encourage small, innovative groups to augment their influence by
    building networks of organizations with similar priorities.
  • We help bring together diverse stakeholders to create unique alliances
    that can make a difference in today’s challenging policy landscapes.
