Why Justice Begins at Home

These days the news can be overwhelming. Stories of violence, injustice and oppression fill our feeds almost daily. Meanwhile, hateful ideas are being given an increasingly visible platform at the national level. These problems can be daunting, and sometimes it’s hard to even know where to start. But the worst thing we can do in a time of so much need is become overwhelmed.

And the Impact Award goes to Liberty Hill!

The National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) announced from Washington D.C. that it has selected Liberty Hill Foundation to receive its 2014 Impact Award in the community foundation category. Liberty Hill is proud to be recognized and to keep company with the other 2014 awardees: Ben & Jerry’s Foundation, The California Endowment and Hill-Snowdon Foundation.

 The Impact Awards were created by NCRP, a philanthropy watchdog group, “to honor foundations of all sizes that practice smart, high-impact philanthropic strategies” and to promote philanthropy “that serves the public good, is responsive to people and communities with the least wealth and opportunity, and is held accountable to the highest standards of integrity and openness.”

Liberty Hill President/CEO Shane Murphy Goldsmith and Liberty Hill Board member Latonya Slack will travel to Washington, D.C. for the June 9 awards ceremony.
