Update From the Foundation

Philanthropy’s Promise

June 23, 2011

Compton Foundation is proud to sign on to Philanthropy’s Promise, a campaign joined by many of the country’s most innovative and influential grantmaking institutions that seek to maximize the effectiveness of their grants and generate the greatest impact in their communities. These grantmakers have voluntarily committed to allocate at least 50 percent of their grant dollars to address the unique needs of the poor, elderly, disabled and other underserved populations, and at least 25 percent towards supporting advocacy, community organizing and civic engagement to address the root causes of social problems. A complete list of grantmakers that have signed on is available at www.philanthropyspromise.org, along with copies of their public statements.
