Racial justice is our leading value

Inatai Foundation believes true equity is possible only when communities have decision-making power over the material conditions of their lives. Organizations and initiatives led by those affected by inequity have the best solutions for enacting real change. We are committed to realizing equity in Washington and ensuring that every choice we make as a foundation is aligned with our beliefs.

Community at the center

Communities most impacted by inequities must be at the center of solutions. In each of Washington’s 39 counties, Black, Indigenous, and other people of color; people with disabilities; members of the LGBTQIA+ community; immigrants and refugees; people living with low incomes; and many who hold several of these identities are leading transformative work. Our funding prioritizes their efforts.
