About NewAlliance Foundation
The mission of NewAlliance Foundation is to support organizations which advance literacy, build communities, and dismantle systems that perpetuate poverty and racism.
As an independent charitable foundation located in a culturally and ethnically rich community, our mission has evolved to reflect our deeply held, yet hitherto not fully expressed values. The NewAlliance Foundation of 2023 and beyond is an anti-racist, anti-poverty foundation with inclusion, diversity, equity, and access as core principles. We support 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations in the arts, community development, health & human services, and education that share our core principles.
For more than a decade, we have targeted a segment of our grantmaking toward programs that empower people through development of literacy skills. We recognize literacy as a cornerstone in building and maintaining an equitable society and are proud to offer READy for the Grade to communities in need of this important equity-building tool.
