Marguerite Casey Foundation

Who We Are

We imagine a world where our democracy and economy truly represent the contributions, dreams, and desires of communities that have been historically excluded from sharing in the resources and benefits of society. People should be more than just represented in our democracy and economy—their representation must include their ability to shape them.

Our Mission

MCF supports leaders who work to shift the balance of power in their communities toward people who are excluded from sharing in the resources and benefits of society, and who have the vision and capacity to build a truly representative economy.

Inside MCF

We Choose Solidarity. We Choose Justice. We Choose Freedom.

Marguerite Casey Foundation believes it is the responsibility of philanthropy to support leaders on the forefront of community organizing — leaders helping those gain power who have long been excluded from having it.

By the Numbers

As this movement grows, so does the need for changemakers who can bring their ideas, energy, and skills to the table.
