The Meyer Foundation is working toward a vision of a just, connected, and inclusive Greater Washington community in which systemic racism and its consequences no longer exist. We support organizations that are building power to achieve a racially and economically just Greater Washington region.
We focus the Foundation’s resources toward three core bodies of work: A Just and Equitable COVID-19 Recovery, focused on supporting efforts to rebuild and recover from the pandemic in Greater Washington; Reimagining the Social Contract, aimed at redefining the relationship between systems and people; and the Fund for Black-led Change, a five-year, $20 million initiative to strengthen the infrastructure of Black-led movements building power to change communities and the region.
Cultivating a team that embodies the diverse experiences of the Greater Washington region is essential to our mission and values. We strongly and sincerely encourage applications from people of color/of the global majority, immigrant, bilingual, and bicultural individuals; people with disabilities; members of LGBTQIA+ and gender non-conforming communities; and people with other diverse backgrounds and lived experiences.
