GriffinHarte Foundation - Grants
The GriffinHarte Foundation promotes civil conversations about issues that divide us and are often contentious and difficult to sort through.

Because the foundation believes that communication is one of the key elements to understanding and working with social differences, it supports and promotes conversations, research, and scholarship that are grounded in questions and practices of civility and feminism; informed by a desire to define, explore, and advocate for social, political, and economic justice in our professional and personal lives; and are centered in an explicit recognition of the ways lives and communication are influenced by identities — gender and sex, race and ethnicity, age and physical abilities, and education and economic standing.
