Together with their funding partners and their grantees, Solidago looks for opportunities to work for fundamental, transformational change, where people’s shared experiences and collective power will result in a better world for all.
The Foundation often funds work less likely to receive support from traditional funding sources in the following three program areas:
- Economic Justice: for the creation of new systems that more equitably share the benefits of economic prosperity with all.
- Environmental Justice: to remedy and prevent the harmful health impacts of environmental degradation and toxic pollution of disadvantaged communities.
- Electoral Justice: to make the electoral process more responsive to the needs of all people, and particularly more accessible to the traditionally disenfranchised.
Their mission is to promote justice, equity, sustainability and enfranchisement for all through charitable grantmaking to, and work with, progressive, empowering, community based organizations and collaborations.
Solidago is the Latin term for the goldenrod plant, whose name means, “to strengthen or make whole”. Inspired by this widespread and strong-rooted plant, the Foundation seeks non-traditional and creative approaches to deep-rooted social problems that address the institutionalized disparities of wealth, resources, power and opportunity. Solidago supports building progressive organizations and alliances for lasting structural change of unjust systems.
