In a letter to members released this week, Northern California Grantmakers President and CEO Ellen LaPointe announced that NCG will be focusing its strategic efforts in three key areas moving forward:
- Equity and Social Justice: Leveling the opportunity playing field and working to right persistent wrongs
- Leadership, Culture and Community: Nurturing the dynamic and diverse people and institutions in philanthropy
- Regional Vibrancy and Sustainability: Building networks to sustain the fabric and culture of the place we all love

“The choices we all make now will shape our community and cultural legacy for generations,” says LaPointe. “Our members and community partners share our view that focusing in these areas is timely and deeply relevant to the complex and pressing issues confronting our region, and integral to our role as a regional association. Aligning our strategies and priorities in this way affords us the extraordinary opportunity to strengthen our collective efforts at a critical juncture, and to have a lasting and meaningful impact.”
