Since the pandemic began, LISC’s network of Financial Opportunity Centers has shifted gears to get cash grants to hundreds of clients who need immediate resources—to put food on the table, keep a roof overhead and get to the other side of a crisis. MetLife Foundation, Citi Foundation and Wells Fargo Foundation have stepped up to make it possible.
In an op-ed for Next City, Beth Marcus, LISC’s SVP for resource development, describes how LISC is creating new ways to embed an equity lens in its grant-making to small businesses during the pandemic. “We needed to use non-traditional tools and practices to overcome the biases in traditional finance and grant-making,” writes Marcus. “Equity is in the details, and we paid attention to them.” The lessons learned have broad applications for grant-makers everywhere committed to social and economic justice.
LISC and the Atlanta United Foundation have launched GA 100, a campaign to create 100 mini-pitches across Georgia before the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The first four sites have been chosen, and the Atlanta United Foundation is now seeking applications for the next round of grants.
