Philanthropy plays a crucial role in powering economic justice by addressing systemic inequalities and providing support to marginalized communities. By prioritizing economic justice and supporting initiatives that create equal opportunities and address structural inequalities, philanthropy contributes to a more inclusive and equitable society, ultimately leading to sustainable economic growth and prosperity for all.

"We are grateful to the United Way and the National Grid Foundation for their ongoing, generous support of our fuel assistance program. Now more than ever, we need additional assistance as the skyrocketing cost of home heating fuel outpaces the ability of low-income families to pay to keep warm this winter. These additional funds will help us heat more homes, including many who earn too much to qualify for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) but not enough to pay the heating bill."
