Mission and Work

Mission

BOREALIS PHILANTHROPY works as a partner to philanthropy, helping grantmakers expand reach & impact.

Program 1

$14.3m annual program spend • The racial equity in philanthropy fund invests in philanthropy serving organizations to inform, educate, and equip funders to integrate racial equity policies and practices into their grantmaking and programs. Our vision is to normalize grantmaking strategies that prioritize structural change and contribute to ending racial disparities.

Program 2

$5.9m annual program spend • In 2018, our immigration initiatives supported impact litigation through the immigration litigation fund (ilf), and also provided timely and rapid support to organizations addressing the pressing issues of family separation and the criminal prosecution of immigrants. The ilf supports efforts to challenge unjust immigration enforcement policies and practices. The organizations we fund use impact litigation as a powerful and proven tool to ensure that the nation's immigration enforcement system is fair, humane, and prioritizes the civil and human rights of those vulnerable to deportation.

Program 3

$2.4m annual program spend • The fund for trans generations works in solidarity with activists and organizations for a future where trans and gender non-conforming people live with freedom, safety, and self-determination.
