From criminal justice reform in the U.S. to Syria’s refugee crisis, we support a variety of high-impact initiatives across a range of urgent global issues, including the Foundation’s inaugural project at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados.
The wave of protests that swept the United States in the weeks after the murder of George Floyd called for immediate policy reform as well as divesting from policing and reinvesting in community-led solutions. In response to that urgent call, we partnered with Jack Dorsey’s #StartSmall initiative to deploy $11.5 million to 12 organizations fighting for racial justice and a full-scale systemic revolution.
Specifically, our funding supported efforts in legal defense, voter rights, eliminating bail system disparities, police reform, building local power, and education and engagement.
“There is no doubt that we all thrive when we are treated equally."
The Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine
The Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine at Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in Barbados was established in 2012 with a $1.75M investment in QEH’s first modern radiotherapy machine, the Equinox External Beam Therapy System as well as additional radiotherapy equipment. Today, CLF is collaborating with QEH around the long-term sustainability of the center, as well as supporting the pediatrics unit.
