The Solidago Foundation was founded in 1995 with a mission to:

To promote justice, equity, sustainability and enfranchisement for all through charitable Grantmaking to, and work with, progressive, empowering, community-based organizations and collaborations.

The name 'Solidago' refers to the goldenrod plant family and means to strengthen and make whole. Inspired by this image, the Solidago Foundation supports building progressive movements and organizations for lasting structural change of unjust systems.

The Solidago Foundation seeks non-traditional and creative approaches to deep-rooted social problems, especially those that address the institutionalized disparities of wealth, resources, power and opportunity. The Foundation often funds work less likely to receive support from traditional funding sources in the following four program areas.

Economic Justice... for the creation of new systems that more equitably share the benefits of economic prosperity with all.

Environmental Justice... to remedy and prevent the harmful health impacts of environmental degradation and toxic pollution of disadvantaged communities.

Electoral Justice... to make the electoral process more responsive to the needs of all people, and particularly more accessible to the traditionally disenfranchised.

Global Justice... to develop an international grassroots movement that directly uplifts and empowers those people who are the most impacted by it.

We are excited about our new office renovations, designed by Coldham & Hartman Architects, which include a rooftop photovoltaic installation by PV Squared.
