"Social Justice at the Surdna Foundation" is the Surdna Foundation's final of three centennial publications. The narrative is a reflection on how Surdna's board landed on social justice as the core of the Foundation's grantmaking and why we have chosen to stay in this funding space.  The narrative, authored by Sharda Sekaran, includes the distillation of 28 interviews with the Foundation's board (past and present), current staff, grantees and partners in the field. These conversations contextualized the Foundation's social justice commitment and the personal and strategic significance for those closest to the work. Click here to read.
