Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Promoting Outcomes that Benefit Diverse Communities

Across our program areas, we are actively engaged in promoting outcomes that provide equal access to opportunities and directly impact the quality of life of diverse communities.

In 2012, our Children, Families, and Communities program made grants totaling approximately $16.7 million to nonprofit organizations and local governments for the improvement and expansion of health insurance for all children in the United States and quality preschool for all of California’s children, as well as after-school programs for middle school students across the state. Through these initiatives, we seek to ensure that every child, regardless of income, geography, racial/ethnic origin, or immigration status, has access to the critical services and quality education that can set them on the best course in life.
