Funders for Family Leadership

Transforming Philanthropic Practice to Center Parent Power

Pursue Justice

We strive for justice and equity in all of our work. We recognize that parents and families are diverse in their identities and their experiences with systems of oppression. We believe systems change is possible through uplifting parent power and leadership. 

Respect and Trust Parents

We understand that we can only do this work well if we have respect for and trust of parent and family leaders. We enter spaces with love for those we serve and humility in our role. Authenticity through honest relationships with parent partners is central to our approach.

Advocate for Structural Change

We believe that the field of philanthropy needs to change. Our work as funders needs to transform to share power and allocate resources so that families can guide us all towards an equitably designed future.
