Grantmaking

We partner with organizations and projects that build the power of communities to reimagine, recreate, and reform systems to achieve racial equity.

A Systems Approach

We apply a systems approach to achieve a just, connected, and inclusive Greater Washington. This means our work and the work we support seeks to:

Address Root Causes

Address the root causes of racial disparities in housing, education, and economic well-being.

Change the System

Shift the conditions, policies, practices, priorities, culture, and power to create systems that are equitable and inclusive.

Build Leadership in Communities

Build the power and leadership of the people most directly affected by inequity based on the unique context of their experiences.

Where We Fund

We support organizations and projects working in the following areas:

  • District of Columbia;
  • Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland;
  • The cities of Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax City, Manassas and/or Manassas Park, and the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, and/or Prince William in Northern Virginia.

What We Support

Organizations and projects most aligned with our priorities will:

  • Apply a systems change approach to achieve Inclusive & Equitable Neighborhoods, Inclusive & Equitable Schools, and/or an Inclusive & Equitable Economy in our funding geography
  • Are working on specific opportunities to advance systems toward racial justice and equity. These opportunities have the potential, when combined with efforts of others, to create significant, multi-generational improvements for people and communities of color in housing, education, and economic well-being
  • Build and share power and leadership with their constituents, actively engaging them in decision-making
  • Actively participate in broader organizing, movement, and/or field-building activities to advance racial equity in the Greater Washington region

How to Apply

Equitable and Just COVID-19 Recovery Grants

*Please note: The deadline to apply was Friday, October 23, 2020 by 5pm ET.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a racial justice issue that has worsened existing inequities and disproportionately harms Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other people of color.  Rebuilding from COVID-19 must be rooted in equity, justice, and our shared humanity in ways that don’t just return to pre-pandemic policies and practices, but instead help build a more racially just society that works for everyone in our region.    

To promote an equitable and just path forward in the Greater Washington region, the Meyer Foundation will award $500,000 in grants to organizations or projects focused on an equitable and just COVID-19 recovery.

Grants Database

Please note: In 2018 and 2019, Meyer awarded transition grants to a number of grantee partners whose work does not align with our racial equity goals and strategy. Starting in 2020, we will evaluate all applications and make all funding decisions based on our systems approach.
