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.
