Annual Update from the Board
A look back at 2021
Highlights from the Year
Sam and Marcus both share highlights from 2021, including getting to know the work of nonprofits funded by the Mardag Foundation.
We saw a record number of applications this year, a total of 423, all of which were read, and funded 135 nonprofit organizations.
“The work we support in the community through our grantmaking is a key piece of our work, but I think our work does not start or stop there,” said Sam. “We need to have real conversations about race, white supremacy and about how philanthropy has played a role — intentionally and unintentionally — in contributing to some of the challenges we’re trying to solve.”
Sam and Marcus thank nonprofits for all of the amazing work they do day-to-day in the midst of change and the ongoing pandemic, despite often not having enough resources.
