So when it comes to work, and my beliefs, I think it’s critically important that we open those spaces for folks from all walks of faith to be able to find the places that unify them.

Justice and love are the pillars that hold it all together for me. Love is something very tangible, that really unites people, and creates the change that we want to see in our own lives and in the lives of the communities that we serve and care about. — Jacqueline Martinez Garcel, CEO, Latino Community Foundation

Philanthropy is the other piece. The root word is ‘love of your brother,’ it’s not about writing a check. It’s not about charity. We say we are about change, not charity.
