Grants & Partners

Our faith calls us to use our gifts to help all people, advancing equity and justice in the here and now—and hopefully for generations to come.

The Philanthropies, Neighborhood Support, and Investments teams at Trinity Church Wall Street use the tools of philanthropy, our convening power, and our voice to advance Trinity’s mission goals 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.
