Grants & Partners

The Philanthropies team at Trinity Church Wall Street uses the tools of philanthropy, our convening power, and our voice to advance Trinity’s mission goals.

Trinity Church has engaged in a strategic visioning process to clarify and articulate our core values and mission priorities. As a result of this process, Trinity’s grantmaking programs align with the church’s mission goal of building neighborhoods, leadership, and capacity.

What We Fund

Our grantmaking focuses on four strategic initiatives, guided by the Philanthropies team: Housing and Homelessness, Racial Justice, Mission Real Estate Development, and Leadership Development. Our work across all four initiatives is rooted in a strong commitment to advancing an equitable society in which the allocation of resources, opportunities, and hardships are not determined by race.
