The Edward W. Hazen Foundation, a private foundation established in 1925, is committed to supporting organizing and leadership of young people and communities of color in dismantling structural inequity based on race and class.
THE HAZEN FOUNDATION NO LONGER ACCEPTS UNSOLICITED PROPOSALS OR LETTERS OF INQUIRY; INSTEAD THE FOUNDATION WILL BI-ANNUALLY ISSUE REQUESTS FOR PROPOSALS AND CALLS FOR LETTERS OF INQUIRY
For the coming five year period, Hazen has reaffirmed its commitment to the mission and focus on support for grassroots organizations that develop the capacity of adults and young people to generate sophisticated analyses of their experiences living in a society shaped by structural oppressions and to identify issues central to that oppression, build power, and strive to change them. Looking to incorporate what we have learned over the past four years and to respond to the evolving work in the field, the Foundation has established the following goals for 2015 through 2019.
This is a propitious time for us to assess how much progress as a nation we have made in overcoming a history of slavery, racial segregation, political discrimination, and economic subordination endured by African Americans and other people of color.
