The Bentonville based Walton Family Foundation ("WFF") unveiled their strategic grant-making plan on Monday, pledging over $2 billion in philanthropic efforts over the next five years.
The five year plan also prioritizes three main goals: Championing community-driven change, prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion, and collaborating with partners to develop innovative approaches that bring people and ideas together from all walks of life.
“To create meaningful and positive change in the communities we serve, we must first listen to and learn from those closest to the complex challenges. That insight will empower breakthrough ideas that are the building blocks for the big system change we hope to achieve," said WFF Executive Director Caryl M. Stern. -WFF
