WKKF wants all children to live a full life with high-quality, early childhood experiences, to grow up in homes with families that have stable, high-quality jobs, and to live in a community where they are nurtured. Our grantmaking supports thriving children, working families and equitable communities. And we continuously learn from our investments and recognize innovation as a catalyst for success.
- Thriving Children: We support a healthy start and quality learning experiences for all children.
- Working Families: We invest in efforts to help families obtain stable, high-quality jobs.
- Equitable Communities: We want all communities to be vibrant, engaged and equitable.
Embedded within all that we do is our commitment to racial equity, to developing leaders and to engaging communities in solving their own problems. This is all part of our DNA as the Kellogg Foundation.
As a complement to our racial healing and racial equity investments, WKKF launched the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) enterprise in 2016. It is a community-by-community endeavor to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism and bring about transformational, sustainable change.
We continue to work nationally throughout the U.S. and with sovereign tribes. We also concentrate up to two-thirds of our grantmaking in what we call priority places: Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico and New Orleans, Chiapas and the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, and in Central and South Haiti. We are committed to working in each of these priority places for at least a generation.
