Fall 2019 Grantees

By | Field News, Grantees, Uncategorized

Field Foundation Board Members and Life Directors met on September 19 and approved our latest round of grantees. These organizations represent our grantmaking model of Community Empowerment through Justice, Art, Media & Storytelling and Leadership Investment. Our Justice portfolio focuses on systemic intervention work led by ALAANA (African Latinx Asian Arab and Native American) organizers working in communities across Chicago. Note the work this round we are honored to support in affordable housing, immigration, and cannabis legalization. The Art portfolio focuses on space-making and capacity-building, with continued emphasis on the intersections within Art and Justice. The inaugural Media & Storytelling portfolio supports ALAANA leadership and outlets that are taking multifaceted approaches to disrupting inequities within the media map. And our Leadership Investment portfolio doubles down on supporting the visionaries across our city working in our program areas of Justice, Art and Media & Storytelling. We are proud of our Fall 2019 grantees and are inspired by their bold vision and work.

Spring 2019 Grantees

By | Field News, Grantees

Announcing our spring 2019 grantees. Field Foundation board members and life directors met on May 29 and approved our latest round of grantees. These organizations represent our Art and Justice portfolios in our grantmaking model of Community Empowerment through Justice, Art, Media & Storytelling and Leadership Investment. This portfolio consists of organizations who are not only doing transformative work on the south and west sides of our city, but also on a citywide level. They are influencing creative ecosystems, economies, policy agendas, and conversations around equity that significantly impact their communities. We are confident that our 2019 Spring grantees will elevate Chicago’s landscape through alliances that create investment opportunities in heat map communities. We are proud to support and partner with these amazing organizations!
